The Big Five across Africa
Spotting the Big Five on safari is the ultimate African wildlife experience, attracting animal fans to the plains of Africa time and time again. Elephant, leopard, rhino, buffalo and lion where nicknamed the Big Five as these were the hardest animals to hunt in the days of the ‘great white hunter’ in the 19th century. There are many countries and so many national parks in Africa where you can enjoy a Big Five safari, from South Africa’s Kruger National Park to Namibia’s Etosha National Park and Chobe National Park in Botswana, with no two animal sightings ever the same. Driving across the beautiful landscape, the expert guides will take you to close proximity of prides of yawning lions, herds of elephants playing and spraying each other around a waterhole, a gang of buffalo chomping on the long grass, a rhino and its calf wallowing in the mud, and a single elusive leopard hanging out in the branches of an acacia tree.
