Big Five South African Guided Safaris Tours Big Five South African Guided Safaris Tours

Please note that as our tours are exclusive to only those persons making the reservation, Far and Wild Safaris are able to tailor-make any of these itineraries below to suit you.

For example, you may opt to be dropped off in Johannesburg and not in Durban at the conclusion of the tour (or you may want to be collected and dropped off in Johannesburg), or you may want to stay one night longer at a lodge in the Nambiti Game Reserve, or even choose to stay at two different lodges in this reserve. You may also simply want an additional day at either Moorcroft Manor or Montusi Mountain Lodge, to explore this area or just to relax - the choices are yours.

However, it is recommended that you should really stay a minimum of two nights at a game lodge to get the full wildlife experience - a one night stay may be just a little too rushed.

These safaris can also be tailor-made to fit a visit into the Anglo / Zulu War Battlefields and particularly the battlefields of Rorkes Drift and Isandlwana. The Anglo-Zulu War was fought in 1879 between the British and the Zulus. Following Lord Carnarvon's successful introduction of federation in Canada, it was thought that similar political effort, coupled with military campaigns, might succeed with the African kingdoms, tribal areas and Boer republics in South Africa. In 1874, Sir Henry Bartle Frere was sent to South Africa as High Commissioner for the British Empire to bring such plans into being. Among the obstacles were the presence of the independent states of the South African Republic and the Kingdom of Zululand and its army. Frere, on his own initiative, without the approval of the British government and with the intent of instigating a war with the Zulu, had presented an ultimatum on 11 December 1878, to the Zulu king Cetshwayo, with which the Zulu king could not comply. Bartle Frere then sent Lord Chelmsford to invade Zululand. The war is notable for several particularly bloody battles, including a stunning opening victory by the Zulu at the Battle of Isandlwana, as well as for being a landmark in the timeline of imperialism in the region. The war eventually resulted in a British victory and the end of the Zulu nation's independence.

Nambiti Private Game Reserve near Ladysmith, KwaZulu-Natal :

The Nambiti Private Game Reserve, with its waterfalls, diverse landscapes and abundant wildlife, offers a wonderful wildlife experience. Unlike most other game reserves, Nambiti has the carrying capacity of almost twice that of wildlife regions such as Botswana, thus being able to carry more game per hectare than many other game reserves. The Nambiti Private Game Reserve was begun in 1999 from what was originally a cattle and maize farming area. These farms were acquired and then the mammoth task of removing internal fencing and old buildings started. After all the unwanted manmade structures were removed, the task of removing all alien vegetation commenced. After some time the Nambiti Game Reserve was ready for the delicate task of re-introducing wildlife. Now after many years of productive management, Nambiti has come full circle. The fauna and flora is flourishing and has settled down into the slow moving time of Africa. Most of the endemic species have returned, giving a particularly diverse range of species not found in most protected areas in South Africa. This game reserve has plenty of water - so vital to the flourishing wildlife and maintaining this.

The Nambiti Private Game Reserve is home to the "Big Five", namely lion, elephant, black and white rhino and buffalo (leopard are here but are extremely shy and very rarely seen) and about thirty other game species, including cheetah and hippo. The bushveld on this game reserve has incredible biodiversity including savannah, grassland, thornveld and tall acacia trees of the Tugela Basin biome. The birdlife is fairly prolific with several rare bird species found in the ravine bush alongside the two 40 metre waterfalls of the Sundays River, which flows through the reserve.
