South Africa Safaris

Safaris in South Africa are a must for anyone fascinated by wildlife, and here the Big Five refers to buffalo, elephant, lion, leopard and rhino. The thrill comes from photographing, observing and appreciating them in their natural habitat.

If you're looking for a Big Five safari experience in South Africa you can go to almost any province, but the Kruger National Park, which stretches across the Mpumalanga and Limpopo provinces, remains an iconic safari destination. The Big Five abound and flourish in the park, and you can see them by self-drive, guided drives or guided walks through the bushveld.

Prepare to be awed. Whether it is spotting a leopard dozing in the bough of a tree, a black rhino half-hidden in thick shrubs, finding a pride of lions in the shade after a kill, or watching a large herd of elephants or Cape buffalo move soundlessly across the road — these moments leave a permanent imprint on your soul. Always remember that you're dealing with wild animals and that you're in their territory. There are rules of engagement relating to Big Five safaris in South Africa. Read your guidebook carefully and heed the words of your ranger at all times.

Once you are done with the Big Five activities in Mpumalanga, it's time to “sweat the small stuff” and learn about wondrous creatures like the dung beetle.
