Africa's Elusive Big Five

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts


The African black-footed cat looks like a house cat.. I have never heard of that one? and the fact it is the smallest wild cat in Africa, makes you feel you should know of it.

If you've ever dreamed of going on an African safari, you've heard of the "Big Five": the Cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion and rhinoceros. While these animals are now said to represent the large fauna that safari-goers would most like to see, the term actually has a more sinister origin. It was coined by big game hunters decades ago to refer to the difficulty in hunting these massive creatures on foot -- and the danger involved when they were cornered and shot at.
