Big 7 of South Africa
The lion, rhino, elephant, leopard and buffalo make up the exclusive Big 5 of Africa. The term was originally used for the five most difficult animals to hunt, but now it refers to Africa’s most famous animals, and seeing all five on a safari is a truly remarkable experience. Since 2009, South Africa has introduced two more additions to the list – the southern right whale and the great white shark. And the only place where the Big 7 can be seen in their natural habitat is the Addo Elephant National Park.
