Only in South Africa will you be able to do a Big 7 safari in the areas surrounding Cape Town. The Mother City of South Africa is one of the few cities on our planet, where you can discover the great African wildlife within 3 days.
The Big 7 Safari is only available during the months of June to end November, when whales migrate in to the coastal areas. Should you be unable to visit the Cape in spring time however, there is always the Big 6 Safari. The greatest of all wild animals in South Africa include leopards, buffalos, lions, rhinos, elephants, whales and the Great White Shark. On our tours you will also have the opportunity of seeing giraffes, zebras, cheetahs and antelope.
