Encounter the Big Five
 
Elephant, lion, leopard, buffalo and rhinoceros. The Big Five, so called because early hunters knew them to be the most dangerous and impressive animals in Africa. It is possible to encounter each of these “big beasts” in a few days on safari in many of South Africa’s wildlife reserves. And, of course, while you’re seeking them out you come across graceful antelope, curious giraffe, yawning hippos, furtive cheetah and so many more examples of Africa’s extraordinary wildlife.
Once a child’s imagination is engaged they can become absorbed in a pursuit. On safari, immersed in beauty and excitement and with a friendly guide to lead and interpret, your children will love every animal encounter. Each one of the Big Five has its own life cycle, character and behaviour and to have your guide explaining elephant family relationships while you are sitting twenty yards from a herd is pure joy and absolutely fascinating.
No two days on safari are the same. As you explore winding trails, follow the rivers and traverse the savannahs you witness battles for survival, animals caring for their young and moments of beauty. Your family might watch a troop of baboons playing, squabbling, grooming each other and watching you before scattering squawking into the trees as one sets off an alarm call. Perhaps a leopard has been seen approaching through the grasses. Is it a false alarm or does your guide think she’s there? Can you find her?
With your own guide and private vehicle you can take your time. Perhaps one of the family can be photographer, seeking out that perfect shot of a leopard in a tree, or the instant that a lion pride launches into action. After lunch you can choose between a doze, playing in your pool or editing some of the hundreds of pictures on your laptop. Talk to us about the ideal combination of places for your family’s Big Five safari. After all, we’ve been doing this nearly thirty years and know every reserve, lodge and camp.
