Big 5 Safaris
Where to go
For most visitors to Africa, an encounter with the Big Five (Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard) is top of their wish list and our 50+ expert travel consultants know this. The Big Five are among the most recognised icons of the continent. The name ‘Big Five’ derives from these creatures being considered the most dangerous to hunt. Today, thankfully, most of the ‘hunting’ is done with binoculars and long camera lenses.
The Big Five can be found in a number of African countries, especially in the southern and eastern regions. A Big Five safari makes the perfect complement to any African journey. Contact us right now to plan your ideal holiday.
The most popular countries for a Big Five safari are in southern and East Africa: Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Up-and-coming safari destinations such as Malawi, Uganda, Rwanda and Mozambique are also worth mentioning for their diverse experiences.
South Africa offers the most variety for the safari enthusiast. From the continent’s second-largest park, the Kruger, to small, luxury concessions dotted throughout the bushveld, South Africa has something for everyone. Options range from the Kalahari Desert and subtropical forests of the Garden Route to the snow-capped mountains of the Drakensberg.
Four of South Africa’s neighbours boast some of the best Big Five destinations in the world. Namibia’s flagship national park is Etosha which, along with the many private reserves on its fringes, offers a superb, arid-safari experience. Hwange in Zimbabwe is an enormous national park with a wide diversity of landscapes, best explored.
