The Big Five – Safari in South Africa

There’s something magical by seeing animals in their natural surroundings. Where they can run around and be who they’re intended to be. One of my best travel experiences was a safari trip to South Africa one year ago. We spent four amazing days in Shindzela Tented Camp in the Timbavati Private Game Reserve, which is a part of the Kruger National Park.

First, I’ll dedicate a post to The Big Five, which we were lucky to see during our four safari days.

Just making sure that you keep a safe distance from me and my herd before I join them.

We’re a bit skinny in the winter time. Looking forward to the spring!

We also saw a lot of other animals. I’ll dedicate a blog post to them later.

 

Have you been on safari? Did you see the Big Five? I would really appreciate a comment.
