Which Safari is the Best for Game Viewing?

OK, so my husband and I are definitely doing a safari in Africa. We're most interested in seeing animals. The question is--which part of Africa is best for the "Big 5" game viewing? Kenya? Botswana? South Africa? My husband is also particularly interested in elephants and rhinos. Thanks in advance for your help!

You could see the Big Five in Kenya, although unlikely that you will get them in one reserve.
Mara for the cats, Lake Nakuru for the Rhino and Amboseli for the elephant. That said you will also see elephant in the mara along with buffalo.

In Botswana you would likely see four of the five, small chance of seeing the recently introduced Rhino.

Should you venture into South Africa the best place to see all five is the Sabi Sands. And if notching the big five is impportant then mala mala is the place to go, they will in give you a certificate of accomplishment.

In the event that you are happy to drink in the wildness of Africa, then any of these places is going to suit your needs.
