Game drives are in open Land Rovers, with a professional
team of game rangers and trackers to afford the best
possible sightings and encounters with Africa's Big 5.
Sighting the "Big Five" has become something of a quest
for many people when on safari, and the Kruger National Park
has more than its fare share of these, with an estimated
1,800 lion, 9,125 elephant, 25,000 buffalo, unknown number
of leopards and 2,300 black and white rhino.
These animals became the 'Big Five' because they are the
five most dangerous animals to hunt, when injured they
attack! Game drives in open land rovers, with professional
team of Kruger game rangers, offer guests the thrill of
close encounters with Africa's Big Five. Guided walking
safaris and birding safaris are also offered
