Which Parks outside of Kruger can I see all the Big 5 in South Africa?
Question

Last year, our family visited the Kruger National Park in South Africa. My kids have begged for us to go back and see the “Big 5” again, but I really feel that it’s a waste going back to the same place when I am sure that there are many other parks to explore. Which parks in South Africa have the Big 5?

South Africa offers an accessible opportunity to view some amazing wildlife in a tourist-friendly and budget-friendly country. Not only that, but the Big 5 can be found in a variety of national parks and private game reserves, so you can see them all on a single safari – or, if you’re lucky, on a single game drive! The African elephant, lion, buffalo, leopard, and rhino were dubbed “the big five” by hunters because they were thought to be the most deadly and difficult African creatures to kill while hunting on foot. Other than the Kruger National Park, these parks offer the Big 5 experience:

  1. Addo Elephant Park- Eastern Cape
  2. Aquila Private Game Reserve – Western Cape
  3. Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park – Kwa Zulu Natal
  4. Klaserie Private Nature Reserve – Greater Kruger Area, Limpopo
  5. Madikwe Game Reserve – North West Province
  6. Pilanesberg National Park – North West Province
  7. Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve – Western Cape
  8. Pumba Private Game Reserve – Eastern Cape
  9. Sabi Sands Game Reserve- Greater Kruger Area, Mpumalanga
  10. Thanda Private Game Reserve- Kwa Zulu Natal
  11. Samara Private Game Reserve- Great Karoo, Eastern Cape
