Big Five & Wildlife

East Africa is the best place in the world to watch wildlife. Large animals are more abundant, diverse and visible than anywhere else in the world! There are more then 100 mammal species in East Africa, including Elephants, Rhinos, Buffaloes, Lions, Leopards, Cheetahs, Giraffes, Zebras, Antelopes, Crocodiles, Mountain Gorillas, Chimpanzees and 15 monkey species.

The most wanted savannah animals to see are called the Big 5: Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo, Lion and Leopard. The name  ‘Big Five’ comes from the big game hunters, these animals where the most difficult animals to hunt on foot.
