The Big 5

The Big 5

If you must see all of the big 5 on safari, that very much determines where you must visit, as Rhino are only visible in the Ngorongoro Crater - on the Northern Circuit.

All other members of the big 5 can be seen in many parks so if Rhino isn't a "must" then you have the option of many more parks both in the north and south of the country.

It's common for visitors to want to see the big 5 on their first safari, then the next time, they are free to visit some of the quieter parks. Seeing the Big 5 isn't guaranteed - all but Rhino is almost certain, but there are few rhino in the crater and the crater is large. Often they are seen at a distance, but sometimes guests are lucky and get to see one up close.


  • Thank you very much for the organization of our Safari. We were really happy with our guide Henry and our cook. Everything was great. Henry was a wonderful guide, always on time.

  • We had a really great vacation on the Southern Circuit in Tanzania and wonderfully facilitated by our driver/guide Salim who was really first class - a great representative of Wild Things.

  • All the Parks visited are really wonderful, especially Ruaha and the "king" Katavi that worth absolutely the long trip (at least in our point of view). Yahaya and Salim are like two friends.
