Africa is the birthplace of the safari and there is no better place to see the Big 5 than the savannah of the Serengeti or the plains of the Masai Mara. We were lucky enough to see all five, and it was indeed the adventure of a lifetime. Seeing these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat is truly awe inspiring and renders seeing them in a zoo a very tame experience. The inimitability of the big game landscape not trampled by human feet is captivating and the magic of Africa will get under your skin. I’ve said it before and I will say it again, if ever you have a chance to experience an African Safari, grab it with both hands – you will never regret it!
“No one can return from the Serengeti unchanged, for tawny lions will forever prowl our memory and great herds throng our imagination.”
