The Big 5

Africa's most magnificent animals

The Big 5 refers to the five animals that are the most dangerous to encounter on foot, and the most thrilling. What can really compare to an intimate Big 5 encounter? Going eye-to-eye with an adult elephant, discovering a leopard with a fresh kill in a tree, spending a morning on a misty plain surrounded by hundreds of buffalo, this is raw and beautiful Africa at its best.
