The Big Five Marathon®
The Big Five Marathon® in South Africa is held among the wildlife of the African Savannah. Runners from all over the world will meet in one of the most spectacular “Big Five” game reserves in Africa.
In these magnificent surroundings, one can combine exciting game drives with a challenging marathon route going right through the habitat of the most famous African game: Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard. No fences, no rivers, nothing at all separates the runners from the African wildlife.
It is an exclusive event that combines a challenging marathon experience with a classic African safari holiday. Situated in the Limpopo province, the Entabeni Private Game Reserve provides the perfect setting for the event. Within this 22,000 hectares private game reserve, several accommodation facilities are provided, varying from tented camps to luxurious lodges.
Packages for The Big Five Marathon® are now available for 2013. We can tailor make an itinerary to meet your needs, you can depart New Zealand earlier, make a stopover, or extend your stay post-marathon.
