Big 5 Safaris | Where To See In Tanzania

Big 5 Safaris worth eyewitnesses. When you head to Africa, you can encounter all these animals. Here are the guided Places for you to see Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino, and Buffalo in Tanzania Experience Packages.

Why Named African Big 5?


The Big 5 was traditionally used as a hunting term to describe the five most dangerous animals to hunt on foot in Africa.

But they’re not the most dangerous animals in Africa. The two species that kill the most people are not even part of the Big Five; they are the tiny mosquito and the lazy hippo.


Now Elephants, Buffalos, Lions, Leopards, and Rhinos remain the trending animals to see on your safari trip to Africa.

Who Are The Big 5?

Lion (Panthera leo)

The kings of the animal kingdom, and it’s not hard to see why. You may be lucky enough to see a pride of lions catching some sunlight on the grasses or scouring the plains, like kings and queens on their thrones.

  • Weight: 130 to 190 kg
  • Lifespan: 10 to 4 years

Leopard (Panthera pardus)

The cunning, nocturnal animal. The treetops are the leopard’s bed and they regularly drag their prey up into the branches.

  • Weight: 17 to 65 kg
  • Lifespan: 12 to 15 years

Rhino (Diceros Bicornis)

A black rhinoceros wandering desert plains looks almost prehistoric, a creature from days long ago.

  • Weight: 800 to 1,400 kg
  • Lifespan: 35 to 50 years

Elephant (Loxodonta Africana)

The largest existing land animal and most social animals live in groups of up to a hundred individuals.

  • Weight: 6,000 kg
  • Lifespan: 60 to 70 years

Buffalo (Syncerus Caffer)

They may be referred to as bush cows, but don’t let that fool you. Cape buffalos are powerful, quick, and ruthless predators.

  • Weight: 590 kg
  • Lifespan: 20 years

The Places To See Big 5

Our Big 5 safari destinations range and we know how important it is to see Africa’s signature animals.

We recommend a tour to Serengeti and Ngorongoro Crater where there are all the big 5 animals to spot. Other places to see are Tarangire, Mkomazi, Nyerere, and Lake Manyara, where you’re more than likely to tick off each of the Big 5 after a couple of game drives.

We also know where to go and at what time of year: we can tell you the top destinations to see and many other creatures like hippos, crocodiles, giraffes, wildebeests, zebras, warthogs, hyenas, jackals, wild dogs, buffalo, and many kinds of antelopes.

To maximize your chances, having a guide that knows how they hunt, move, and where they drink is incredibly useful.
