Open-air Land Rovers and expert rangers take you off the beaten path and within touching distance of Africa’s Big Five – leopards, lions, elephants, rhinos and buffalo

Set in the Kruger Park’s Sabi Sands Area, where the original luxury safari began, FiveZero’s Classic Five Safari takes you deep into the South African savannah, and into the heart of Big 5 country. You will head out on safari in open land rovers, guided by a professional ranger, who has an intimate knowledge of both the animals and their habitats. You will get to experience nature at its best, while driving along the untamed Sand river, and spend countless hours in the company of wild animals. The area is famous for its incredible leopard viewing, but you can also expect to see lions, elephants, rhinos, buffalos, hippos, zebra, giraffes and a whole lot more, including over 250 species of birds!

At the end of each day, retire to your luxurious base – a 5-Star private lodge perfectly situated on the banks of the Sand River. Make the most of the beautiful surrounds and get an insider’s view on the secrets of the river life.
