A Big-5 Game Reserve Experience Like No Other
in Ranger Diaries
According to Texans’ own claims, everything is bigger and better in the Lone Star State, but there is something big that they don’t have. We do, at our privately-owned game reserve – Fifty Seven Waterberg – in Limpopo province.
We refer to the Big 5 – South Africa’s most well-known animals, which continue to fascinate visitors to game reserves that are privileged to include these wild animals among their game population.
Unbeknown to some, “Big 5” is not indicative of the size of these 5 creatures – the African lion, African leopard, Cape buffalo, black rhinoceros and African elephant. Size only applies to the elephant. The Big 5 was regarded by hunters as the most difficult and dangerous species to hunt, hence their distinctive collective title.
