For those who think that once you step out of the city, the wildlife will instantly surround you with the famous Big Five (elephant, buffalo, leopard, rhino, lion) animals included, safari around Cape Town may be a tiny bit disappointing. However, such parks, reserves and gardens as Table Mountain National Park, West Coast National Park, Grootbos Nature Reserve, Bontebok National Park, Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve, Cederberg Nature Reserve, De Hoop Nature Reserve, might offer their own special features to excite you.

Some may be close to the city, some a bit further, but the further you get the more splendid animals you will see, in some places even including the Big Five.
