No one knows how to take you on safari better than Big Five. Our roots date back to 1973 in Nairobi, Kenya. Our primary mission then was to introduce small groups of travelers to both the grandeur and subtleties of the remarkable African continent from the perspective of lifelong residents. Today, that original spirit guides us still as we continue to design unhurried, original and insightful safari itineraries. Our classic African safari tours explore the cultures, wildlife and natural wonders of this phenomenal continent, including the finest exclusive safaris lodges, inns and private camps. But we don’t stop there. We have taken the safari model into other regions of the globe, which you will find here. When it comes to safaris, we don’t tell stories better; we tell better stories.
