Have you been fortunate to see Africa’s big 5 but have you ever wondered a certain group of animals are called Big 5?
The reason why these incredible animals are called the Big 5 is because they are the most difficult and dangerous to hunt while on foot.
The big 5 which consist of lions, leopards, elephants, African buffalo, and rhinoceroses is what comes to mind when people think of Africa and safari. Here at Shepherd’s Tree Game lodge we are fortunate to have these animals roaming freely with frequent encounters with these creatures while out on safari. Now you know why these animals are called Africa’s big 5 and we hope to see you soon as we go in search of them and other animals that call the Pilanesberg Nature Reserve home.
