In the car, we already saw a lot of things and then the real safari with a ranger had to start. This safari lasted three hours, from 4 to 7 pm, which means that you also search for animals in the dark. Our ranger was a big African woman, where you immediately feel safe. She looked, that if necessary, she could beat off a tiger with her bare hands. Quite a nice and safe feeling! Together with her, you go looking for the Big Five.
The Big Five is a well-known term among tourists who come to Africa. The big five include the elephant, rhino, lion, leopard, and buffalo. A fact in between, because why are they called the Big Five and why do they include these animals? These five animals, when they feel threatened, will always choose to attack. So if, for example, you split a group of elephants during your safari, you have a problem. Do you see an elephant flapping its ears? Then put your jeep in reverse and get out of here quickly. I don’t think our ranger saw this danger and stopped quietly with the car. We saw the chief of the elephant group wave with his ears, but fortunately, he remained calm.
