The Big Five

African Lion, Leopard, African Elephant, Rhinoceros & African Buffalo


This term originated in the 1800's as; "The five most dangerous animals in Africa to hunt."

Panthera leo  - The African Lion

The largest of our feline species. Originally found throughout Africa from the Barbary Lion of North Africa to the Cape Lion (now extinct) of the southern extremity of South Africa. This tawny animal blends into the grasslands so well that even if a short distance from the roads an entire pride would hardly be visible. One is not able to 

leave the road network in the Provincial and National Parks in South Africa, whereas on the private game farms in the Sabi Sands one is able to drive right up to these recumbent felines at their day-time repose and secure uninterrupted Reservationss and photographs close at hand.
