Big Five from Kenya: A Wildlife Photo Essay

Back in the days of game hunting, these animals were the most difficult to hunt. They were considered the most dangerous as they could cause a lot of harm to the hunters. I was very lucky to see all of them during my very 1st trip to Africa.

An African Lion stares into the early morning sun
Large cat, uses ambush as weapon and does not shy away from confrontation.

A Resting Cape BuffaloCape Buffalo: Very unpredictable. It’s huge size and horns can inflict serious damage.

Leopard stares on into the woods
Nocturnal and secretive. Very difficult to stalk it.

White Rhinoceros - the second largest land mammal in the world
Generally, not aggressive, but when pushed into a corner, will attack.

A Baby Elephant protected by the larger ones
African Bush Elephant:
Stays away from humans. If they feel danger to young ones or if it is a single male, they will not hesitate to attack. Can inflict heavy damage.
