Top Big 5 Safari Destinations 

Ready to get up close with Africa’s most iconic wildlife? A big 5 safari is your ticket to adventure, and there’s no better way to dive into the action than behind the wheel of your own 4×4. Imagine spotting a lion, leopard, rhino, elephant, and buffalo, all in their natural habitats. These giants are the heart and soul of Africa, and with Bush and Desert Car Hire, you can chart your way through some of Africa’s top big 5 safari destinations.

South Africa: A Wildlife Wonderland

First stop, South Africa. Home to the legendary Kruger National Park, this is your playground for a Big 5 safari that you won’t forget. Kruger’s vast landscapes are teeming with the animals you’re dying to see. Lions? Check. Leopards and rhinos? You bet. Plus, elephants and buffaloes roam in numbers here, and with a Bush and Desert Car Hire 4×4, you’re set to explore every corner of this vast park.

Namibia: Beyond the Big 5

Namibia might not tick all the Big 5 boxes in one park, but it’s no less thrilling. Etosha National Park is where you’ll find four of the Big 5, minus the buffalo. But who needs buffaloes when you have ostriches, giraffes, and the stunning vistas of Etosha’s salt pan? A safari drive here is about the vast open skies and landscapes that stretch forever. And with our rugged 4x4s, you’re all set for an adventure that’s anything but ordinary.

Botswana: Wild at Heart

Botswana’s where it gets wild. The Okavango Delta and Chobe National Park are teeming with the Big 5, plus a whole lot more. Lions swimming? Check. Elephants by the hundreds? Absolutely. And with Bush and Desert Car Hire, your safari vehicle is more than just transport; it’s your ticket to the heart of the action. Whether it’s cruising through the delta or following elephant trails in Chobe, we’ve got the wheels to get you there.
