The Big 5

Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Game Reserve


This reserve is famous for it's conservation of black and white rhinos and home to "The Big 5" (Rhinos, Elephants, Cape Buffalo, Lions and Leopard). The Big 5 refers to the animals that are the most difficult to hunt on foot and are also the most dangerous.


We spotted several animals today. It is very exciting to see these creatures in their natural habitat. Our ranger told us that the animals think these jeeps are another animal and as long as we don't leave the vehicle, we should be fine. However, were we to step out...no telling what could happen.


After a day in the bush and spotting some wildlife, 2 of the Big 5 (Rhinos and Cape Buffalo), and a few of the Ugly 5 (Warthogs, Dung Beetles) we are off to the Kingdom of Swaziland.
