Testimonials

We met the team from The Big 5 Safari Company at the New Forest Show and were really impressed with their knowledge of Africa and all matters safari. They then helped us to plan a bespoke family holiday for four in South Africa within a pre-agreed budget. We felt the overall service delivered by Big 5 Safari was first class and certainly a cut above that offered by your typical travel agent. We would certainly use their services again for any similar holiday and recommend Big 5 to others seeking to plan the holiday of a lifetime.

The Marriage Family

Just returned from amazing trip to Victoria Falls, Botswana and Mozambique, including our first safari experience.

The Big 5 Safari Company worked tirelessly to ensure that we were happy with every aspect of our holiday and helped us navigate the vast choice of accommodation to select the right camps for us.  The planning was excellent and everything worked perfectly.  We would highly recommend The Big 5 Safari Company - a tailor-made holiday that delivered above expectation experiences.  Thank you all!
