A classic African safari is not complete without the Big 5 – lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino. Few wildlife experiences can beat the exhilaration of an up-close encounter with these majestic beasts. The term ‘Big Five’ originally referred to the difficulty in hunting these animals as they were so dangerous. Today, they are the celebrated icons of Africa and seeing all five is considered the pinnacle of your safari experience. Our Big 5 safari destinations range widely, from classic safaris in the private reserves of Kruger to untamed escapes in Tanzania. We will help you choose a destination where you’re likely to tick off all of them after a couple of game drives.
We can tailor your safari experience to suit your budget, preferences and travel dates. For a taste of what it’s like to go on safari with us, here are some blogs you might like to read:
