THE BIG FIVE

In Africa, the Big Five game animals are the lion, leopard, rhinoceros (both black and white species), elephant and Cape buffalo. The term was coined many years ago by African big-game hunters and refers to the five most difficult and dangerous animals in Africa to hunt on foot.

While hunting is these days frowned upon by many, and for good reason, the Big Five are still very much around. Enjoy them now in a different manner on an African safari experience.
