One of the biggest attractions in South Africa is its wildlife, thanks to the country containing the so-called big five – buffalo, lions, elephants, leopards and rhinos. Get up close and personal with these animals and more on a safari in any of the South African provinces.
A heavy favourite for safaris is Kruger National Park, widely considered one of the best wildlife reserves in the world. Kruger is home to all of the big five, along with many other iconic African animals, such as giraffes, zebras, hippos, hyenas, and cheetahs. You can either explore the region on your own or sign up for a guided tour.
