BIG 5

Welgevonden Game Reserve is home to Africa’s world-famous Big 5: lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard and rhino. Our rangers are experts in tracking these magnificent creatures during early morning or late afternoon game drives. The 35 000-ha Welgevonden Game Reserve contains the world’s biggest concentration, on private land, of the highly endangered white rhino. The Reserve’s renowned anti-poaching unit has ensured that not one of these gargantuan grazers has ever been lost to poaching – an incredible feat on a continent where the practice is endemic.

THE REAL UNICORN
The beast that’s built like a Tank moves at a speed that is truly unlikely and with the softest heart that could melt any body’s heart, the wonderful Square lipped Rhinoceros…
