Last of the Big Five
After only thirty hours at Kirkman's Camp in Sabi Sands near Kruger NP in South Africa we saw all the Big 5! The term Big 5 was first used by hunters to describe species they most wanted to hunt and they include elephant, rhino, lion, leopard and Cape buffalo. All three of our game drives have been fantastic, thanks to our very knowledgeable guide, Josh, and our tracker, Jerry. Working in zoos for over 40 years and leading dozens of safaris, I thought I knew quite a bit about African wildlife. These two guys showed me I have still have lots to learn.
