South Africa Wildlife - See the Big Five!

Game reserves and conservation organizations in South Africa give visitors the opportunity to explore the diverse and breathtaking wildlife of the country. Hundreds of reptiles, mammals, insects, birds and marine creatures call South Africa home, and with its unique landscapes and various ecosystems, there is a new wildlife discovery waiting for visitors around every corner. Along with the overwhelming beauty of the wildlife in South Africa, some of the animals have folklores and legends that have been told about them for centuries.

Most visitors to South Africa seek accommodation at game lodges and national parks, such as the Kruger National Park and Shamwari Game Reserve, so they are able to go on game drives and catch a glimpse of the Big 5, which is made up of lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhinoceros. Even though these five animals stand out among the African wildlife, other animals such as zebra, giraffe, eland, kudu, cheetah and many others, are equally inspiring. Exploring the wildlife of South Africa is the experience of a lifetime.
