Africa's Big Five

AFRICA'S BIG FIVE

When planning a Safari you are bound to come across the term Big Five which

When planning a Safari you are bound to come across the term Big Five which refers to the five big game, i.e., African Lion, African Leopard, African Elephant, Rihno and Cape buffalo.

"African Big Five", the expression was initially begat by early game hunters who perceived that these species were the hardest and most risky creatures to chase by walking. This made them the greatest prizes, thus, the Big Five. However, now-a-days the term has come to speak as the most looked after safari sightings.

African Lion

He's frequently alluded to as the ruler of the creatures, and it's not difficult to perceive any reason why. The African lion is the undisputed lord of the sub-Saharan savannah and is the world's second-biggest feline after the tiger. In spite of the fact that lions once in a while chase amid the day, they are regularly increasingly dynamic during the evening which is the reason most daytime safari sightings are of felines dozing in the shade. Lions can rest for up to 20 hours per day.

African Leopard

The African leopard is the most elusive of the Big Five creatures. Normally bashful and solely night time, leopard spend the sunlight hours hidden from sight. They are great climbers, utilizing trees to check for prey and to store new slaughters from scroungers like lions and hyena. Leopards are sublimely disguised with a progression of dark spots, or rosettes.

African Elephant

The African elephant is the world's biggest and heaviest land creature, with the greatest individual on record tipping the scales at more than 10 tons/22,000 pounds. They are found in 37 sub-Saharan nations and are fit for making due in a wide scope of various territories, from lavish wetlands to dry deserts.

Cape Buffalo

Cape buffalo are found in water-rich diversion stores and national stops all through sub-Saharan Africa. There are four sub-types of Cape buffalo, the biggest of which is the one most normally found in East and Southern Africa.

Rhino

There are two types of rhino in Africa: the dark rhino and the white rhino. Both are in danger of elimination because of the poaching plague caused by the interest for rhino horn in Asian societies. It is evaluated that there are around 5,000 dark rhino and 20,000 white rhino left in nature.

After breakfast, your driver/guide, will be ready to pick you head into the Tarangire National Park for a game drive. The park runs along the line of the Tarangire River and is mainly made up of low-lying hills on the Great Rift Valley floor. Its natural vegetation mainly consists of Acacia woodland and giant African Baobab trees, with huge swamp areas in the south. Both the river and the swamps act like a magnet for wild animals, during Tanzania’s dry season. The Tarangire National Park is reputed to contain some of the largest elephant herds in Africa. This African national park is also home to three rare species of animals – the Greater Kudu, the Fringed-eared Oryx, as well as a few Ashy Starlings. Other animals to be seeing here includes Giraffe, Zebra wildebeest, leopard, Cheetah, Buffalos, warthogs all kind of impalas, e.tc Tarangire is indeed one of the best national parks to experience the wildlife nature.

Another big draw card to this picturesque national park, its dense population of predators, which include lions, hyenas, jackals, cheetahs and the ever-elusive leopard, which sometimes requires a trained eye to spot. We will visit Lake Magadi, a large but shallow alkaline lake in the southwestern corner, which is one of the main features of the crater.
