the ultimate safari

The elephant, buffalo, black and white rhino, lion and leopard were originally named the Big Five due to the significant challenge and potential danger that they presented to hunters. They symbolize the ultimate in African wildlife and are associated with a true game-viewing experience. Only the sleek, shy leopard with its nocturnal habits and inaccessible habitat may sometimes elude the visitor.

The Big Five have always been renowned as being the fiercest and most dangerous animals. Being able to see these magnificent animals roaming free in their natural habitat is without a doubt one of the most wonderful memories that you will take away with you.
