South Africa – Big Five

Garden Route, South Africa

“Big Five” refers to the five most difficult animals in Africa to hunt (so-called “big five game”). This name was also adopted by wildlife guides, so tourists often talk about “big five” meaning 5 big animals they hope to see. Of course, I just wanted to see the animals, not hunt them!

Big five animals are:
-African lion
-African elephant
-Cape buffalo
-African leopard
-rhinoceros.

  1. This photo is absolutely brilliant !! A mantis in space 😀

    During our safari trip in Africa we were lucky to see all of them. We managed to see only 1 leopard, 1 white rhino and 1 black rhino but many of the others. Wildlife is so fascinating!

    1. Thank you!
      I’m glad you like it! I don’t have any picture of lion, so I though this one may be funny enough 😉
      p.s. I’m jealous about all big-5 😀
