BIG SEVEN

Few experiences are quite as absorbing as seeing Africa’s great beasts up close. The Eastern Cape is home to the Big Seven; buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, rhino, great white shark and southern right whale.

A trip to the Eastern Cape is not complete without catching a glimpse of these animals in their indigenous environment. The character of the region is embodied in these majestic creatures, taking you back to untamed Africa in its purest form. Spanning both land and ocean, the Big Seven is an African marvel that continues to inspire and intrigue.
