The Big Five

Safari Pictures of The Big Five Animals in the Bush

By

"Going to the zoo is nothing like seeing the animals in their natural environment," says Magi Guinane of ImaginExpeditions. On a safari, "You wake up before sunset, have a quick cup of coffee and you’re off. You never know what you will encounter. The “Big Five” are the cape buffalo, elephant, leopard, lion, and rhino."

At Richard Branson's Ulusaba private game reserve in South Africa, game drives go out just before sunrise and again before sunset. All of the animals in these pictures were seen in the wild during a three-day visit.
