Do you want to travel around South Africa, seeking out the magnificent and infamous Big 5? Contrary to popular belief, here in South Africa, these majestic creatures do not roam wild and free on our roads, but can rather be found in our beautiful national parks. The variety of parks in our beautiful country where you will see the Big 5 are: the Kruger National Park, Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve, Pilanesberg Game Reserve, Madikwe Game Reserve, and finally Addo Elephant Park.
We are going to concentrate on two of these spectacular parks today; the Kruger and Pilanesberg Game Reserve, being firm favourites amongst the locals.

The amazing Kruger National Park offers you the chance to see the “Big 5” in their natural habitat. The Kruger Park has long been renowned for the spectacular sightings of Africa’s most famous creatures and is one of the best places in Africa to see the enormous array of animals, large and small, that the continent has to offer. You will see this and so much more, in the popular day and night drive vehicles, when travelling with the Elephant Herd Tours & Safaris guides.

For those self drive adventurers out there, the Pilanesberg Game Reserve is just the place for you!
Some of the most beautiful scenery within the entire park can be viewed in the Mankwe Dam region. The dam is the largest body of water in the game reserve. This makes it the perfect place to spot a wide variety of animals. Water-buck, wildebeest, zebra and impala are among the animals that make a stopover on the grassland bordering the dam.
For bird lovers, there is a bird hide very close to the water’s edge. Make sure you take note of the fish eagles, kingfishers and cormorants circling the dam. All of these places provide many a fantastic opportunity to photograph the plentiful array of fauna and flora.
When it comes to accommodation, look no further than Tambuti Lodge. Set in the north western side of the greater Pilanesberg National Park and only 33km from Sun City, this malaria free Big Five private game lodge is surrounded by the trees of an old Tambuti forest within the Black Rhino Game Reserve.
Sit back and relax with a sundowner as you listen to the calls of the wild echoing throughout the night. Dine under the stars as you chat about the exciting events of the day. At Tambuti, you can view Africa’s most impressive wildlife on morning and afternoon / evening game drives in open 4-wheel drive safari vehicles with their expert guide. Guests can also enjoy interpretive guided bush walks offering the bird watcher, botanist and the nature enthusiast the ultimate bush experience.
