Afternoon Safari Tour
Afternoon Safari Tour
If you want to get up close with the Big 5 roaming free in the wild, then this Half-Day Safari is the one for you. We drive you to one of the most upmarket game reserves in the Western Cape, which is about 2 hours drive from Cape Town. This private game reserve has over 10,000 ha of Big 5 conservancy.
How did these five animals – the lion, elephant, buffalo, rhinoceros and leopard – come to be called the Big Five?
It was originally a hunting term used by the so-called ‘great white hunters’ in the hunting heyday of the 19th and early 20th centuries when professional hunters bagged as many trophies as possible in as short a time as possible.
Considered a rite of passage for seasoned travellers, everybody from American presidents to European royalty and heads of state came to Africa to shoot a large, dangerous animal.
The Big Five quickly became known as the most dangerous animals to hunt on foot, and the name stuck – although now ‘shooting’ is done through a camera lens.
