Big Five Safaris in South Africa

It's something that most of us have on our bucket lists - to go on safari and behold the most majestic creatures on this planet in the wild. For anyone fascinated by wildlife, Big Five safaris are simply a must as you'll get the chance to see buffalo, elephants, lions, leopards and rhinos all in their natural habitat and South Africa is the perfect place to see them all.

 

The Big Five, named as such because they are considered the most dangerous to hunt, can be found at almost any province in South Africa, though the Kruger National Park remains an iconic spot to do so. There aren't just many options when considering where to find them,  but also how, as you can take a self-drive tour, a guided drive, or even a guided walk through the bushveld.

 

 

During a safari out here, there's a good chance you'll manage to catch a glimpse of all five of these awe-inspiring creatures, to see a pride of lions cooling off in the shade, or a large heard of elephants strolling across the path is something to treasure for a lifetime as a special moment.

Get up at the crack at dawn and depart your camp to see the morning sun rise over the vast horizon, gradually illuminating and highlighting the truly remarkable nature before you.  This is the time to spot a leopard relaxing in a big tree, or the overnight lion kill that will satisfy the predators for now at least.

 

 

The Kruger National Park is a renowned spot to have the safari experience and it's easy to see why. With a superb conservation record, an impressive array of wildlife and luxury accommodation, Kruger sets itself apart from other National Parks.  See more than the Big Five here, with thousands of elegant giraffe, lazy crocodiles and prowling wild dogs all to be seen in this abundant area.

 

 

Promising a superb sunny climate year-round, Kruger National Park offers you the chance to explore the reserve as you like, including with a three-night walking trail in deep wilderness areas for a truly unique experience.  The park's sheer size ensures that despite its popularity, there's still a fair chance that you will be alone watching game and taking in the experience all for yourself.
