The term Big 5 was coined by hunters many yonks ago. It referred to the 5 most dangerous animals to meet on foot.

Hi PCM, and from me a welcome as well (although late :oops: )

Nope, you have 3/5, the list is:
Elephant,
Rhino,
Buffalo,
Lion,
Leopard

these where seen, by the hunters of the past, to be the most dangerous animals to hunt, especially if they where wounded.

Regards

JV

Hi PCM

I expect you'll be searching for good deals on airfares to SA very soon - this place is addictive :?

And that won't be the end of it: once you've been a first time, you will keep wanting to go back. It's like an itch that cannot be scratched - the only relief comes from being there!

That is more then likely a Marabou Stork. He often visits the waterhole.
