The Big Five Marathon and Half-Marathon provides the opportunity to run among the wildlife in their natural habitat in the northeastern corner of South Africa.  The course is in the Entabeni Game Reserve, which is a 220KM private reserve situated in the Limpopo Province between Johannesburg and the Kruger National Park.  

The package tour includes game drives in four-wheel jeeps through the Reserve.  You will have the opportunity to view the “Big Five” (African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and rhinoceros) as well as numerous other species such as giraffe, hippopotamus and the many splendid species of antelope, not to mention the abundance of bird life. Your safari lodges will offer spectacular views to the mighty Entabeni-monolith.

Spectacular. The run of a lifetime.

2018 Marathon Tours Big Five Trip

I had never been on safari before so my expectations were through the roof. We saw so many animals and the rangers all seem to have eagle eyes, spotting animals for us. They were so great about stopping, getting the vehicle in a good position for pictures etc. and just so knowledgeable about the wild life.
