The Big Five. Defined today as the 5 animals that you HAVE to see when you go on Safari: The elephant, lion, rhino, leopard, and cape buffalo. While today it’s the ultimate sight seer’s checklist, the Big Five were originally known for being the most dangerous animals to hunt on foot.

Home to some of the most stunning landscapes you will ever see, Namibia is such a unique country with many different cultures.
It is the second least populated country in the world but one thing Namibia isn’t short on is wildlife. For such an often harsh-looking place (to give you an idea – Mad Max: Fury Road was filmed here), there is wildlife everywhere, making Namibia an animal lover’s dream.
So, you’ve decided to go on safari. Rhinos, elephants, and lions, oh my! Before you jet off on your journey, you’ll want to decide if you’re going to go on a Guided Safari or a Self-Guided Safari. There are pros and cons to each, it just depends on the type of safari experience that you’re looking for.
