The Big 5

The Big 5 is a term originally used by hunters to describe Africa’s most dangerous game animals, namely lion, leopard, elephant, Cape buffalo and the black rhino. These days the white rhino is also included due to the rarity of seeing the endangered black rhino. There are numerous national parks and reserves where you can tick these magnificent animals off your list – see the safari wildlife guide below for more information.

Customer Reviews


"Our guide, Sal, was amazing and the range of places we visited was well-selected. By the end of the tour, our group felt like a small family. Tucan Travel was an awesome way to see Peru on limited time."
