This safari was designed as a quest to see the legendary Big Five! Our seven day Big Five safari is by far our most unique safari - giving you the best chance of spotting Africa's most iconic animals. In your pursuit of lions, leopards, elephants, rhinos, and cape buffalo you'll travel through Ngorongoro crater – known as the eighth wonder of the world and the world-famous Serengeti National Park . Along the way, you'll also see enormous herds of wildebeest and zebra, the majestic giraffe, wallowing hippopotamus, lean cheetahs, opportunistic hyenas, playful monkeys, and so much more.
