The Big Five – Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Black Rhino, Buffalo

The term big five originates from hunters who travelled to Africa on shooting safaris. These animals were regarded as the most difficult to hunt and the most dangerous encountered on their safaris. The term is still applicable as these are still potentially the most dangerous animals to be found when visiting Africa. Note also that the true big five includes black and not white rhino.
