The Best Safari Destinations To Spot The Big 5

The Best Safari Destinations To Spot The Big 5

A trip to Africa and enjoying a safari on the continent tops the bucket list of any wanderlust. The animal lover and nature admirer within you will find themselves at the haven of adventure and splendid creations of this universe like magic. You can find tour and travel companies that can organize the Best Wildlife Safari in Botswana for you and your family.

Often, the first thing any tourist plans to do while organizing their African Safari is to find destinations where they can spot the “Big 5.” The Big Five were termed in the early days when men used to go hunting. Hunting lion, leopard, buffalo, tiger, and rhino was considered the sportiest of all, and they made the best trophies, but now things have changed, and spotting these Big 5 is itself considered a great adventure.

  1. Tanzania- Ngorongoro Crater

Ngorongoro Crater offers an amazing view of the Big 5. Although climbing the steep Caldera Walls requires some effort, the wildlife viewing after that is incredible. It is the residence of a good number of black rhinos. They are shy creatures, and to spot them, the best reason to visit the crater is during the dry season. To avoid the cord, you can plan your trip for April and May. The good part is you can also spot the other four, as the sluice cats are quite common in the Serenera Area of Serengeti National Park, which is the next stop for most tourists.

  1. South Africa- Kruger National Park

The Kruger National Park is almost the size of a small country and is home to all of the Big Five. It protects a wide variety of wildlife in their natural habitat. In addition to these Big Five, you can also spot a variety of different antelope species. It is home to the white rhino, and if you are lucky enough, you may even spot a leopard. The best time to visit this part of Africa is May to September.

  1. South Africa- Sabi Sand Game Reserve

This tops the list as the easiest destination to spot the big five. It is a cluster of jointly managed private reserves. Here, you can enjoy a guided drive in an open vehicle, which allows very close-up viewing. The show-stopper of the Sabi desert is the leopards, and there is no better time to visit this place, as it has something or other to present in each season.
