Stop along the way for breaks and food, then return to base by late afternoon.

Thanks to safari guide Theo Potgieter, we saw more than expected... I think even Theo was shocked at times. Hyenas up close, black rhino, wild bush dogs water buffalo and an unforgettable elephant crossing of over 50 elephants. Highly recommended this Kruger safari excursion even if you are staying on one of those private game reserves. You need to take this trip and see a real safari!! (Thanks Theo)

I’d like to commend the level of service Jozef provides. While it was a simple of act of a booking enquiry, he was kind and fast enough to advise, and rectified the issue I had with the booking. On top of that, he managed to connect us with a professional and passionate guide (named Shoes) for our 2-day safari trip. Very pleased and satisfied with the service from Jozef! I highly recommend African Big5 Safari!

Nkateko was very fun and informative! He was constantly on the search for any wildlife and anything that could interest us. We had a blast and saw elephants, giraffes, lions, Buffalo and more. Communication between us and the company was extremely easy and accommodating!

Absolutely amazing experience in Kruger thanks to Jaco and African Big5! Jaco was a pleasure to spend the day with, was very knowledgeable regarding all our questions and provided entertaining stories of past adventures as well. Thanks to Jaco and some good fortune, we saw all big 5 in one day, including a leopard successfully hunting a rabbit and lions chasing down buffalo. A day we will never forget! I highly recommend Jaco and African Big5!
