The big 5 is the Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Buffalo, Rhino and doesnt include any other animals...therefore this forum can be used to post new pictures of Big 5 game

Hi Mornz, welcome to the forum! :D

Eeeuuw..... it's going to be tough teaching the old dogs new tricks, we've been posting special sightings under the highlight threads for years and mostly they are big 5 shots. I for one head for the highlights whenever I have a mo and can see all the nicies in one go, also keeps the forum nice an' tidy. :wink:

But off course, if you happen to snap the whole lotta them in one pic! That would justify a new thread! I look forward to your contributions! :wink:

Hi Mornz, did you check out the highlight threads as MATTHYS suggested, its good to have all the highlights in one place not just those of the big 5 - here are a few early big 5 from Orpen
