Big 5, Kruger National Park: 42 reviews and 66 photos

  Top of the food chain.
by K.Knight

The big five got their name from the era when we were killing animals for "sport" (fun) and paying big bucks for the experience. The "big 5" were the 5 most sought after trophies by these hunters.

Personally I do not agree with this and I feel the name that these magnificent creatures are refered to should be changed to reflect a tourism view point.
