The Big Five is defined by steep inclines almost impossible to run, even more brutal declines (this includes a 3km descent to the Yellow Wood Valley), stretches of rocky, uneven ground and 9 kilometres of deep sand.
You’ll also be running through the natural habitats of elephants, rhino, buffalo, lions and leopards, with no fences or rivers to separate you. Again, a half marathon course is also available.
If you want a more challenging run with plenty of wildlife, try competing in the Beyond the Ultimate Jungle Ultra Marathon in Cuzco, Peru – 5 days, 230km and almost 100% humidity from Cloud Forest through to the Amazon Jungle.
