It is the African lion, the Cape leopard, the African buffalo, the African elephant as well as the African rhino. The lion is a representation of strength and bravery. The other big cat of the group is the leopard. They adjust effortlessly, which has helped them in combatting habitat loss because of the growing human population. Buffalos reproduce all year round, but if water is in short supply they will breed in the wet period. Elephants make use of their tusks for rooting and lifting. The savannah elephant is the largest land mammal globally. The forest elephant has rounder ears and straighter tusks as opposed to savannah elephant. Nearly all of Africa’s rhinos are found in South Africa; even so, the poaching situation is threatening the species and strategies are in progress to move rhinos to Botswana and Australia for their protection. If you cherish cats, you will be very pleased to see other stunning and wild cats in Africa. This is the fastest living land animal worldwide, the cheetah. Additional wild cats to look out for are servals, ocelots and caracals. The gestation phase for ocelots is 79 to 85 days. Servals are also carnivorous and eat rats, fish, frogs, insects and birds. From time to time the caracal is called a desert lynx, even though it does not share physiological characteristics with the lynx family. Who knew that there were so many different sorts of cats roaming free throughout Africa? Antelopes are plentiful in Africa and you are sure to see dozens. These include lechwe, kudu and the sable antelope. But this is only the beginning and you are sure to see lots and lots more. Let us not avoid the forest hogs, hedgehogs, jackals and Cape foxes. If you are keen to see a few more predators then how about a night drive searching for lions, leopards and hyenas? Or what about looking for a baboon or a monkey? The chattering of monkeys and the cheerful baboons are another detail to wait for; just make sure you do not chatter or grin in return! Make sure you ask your ranger lots of questions about the animals - that is what they are there for, in the end. Bird viewers will have plenty to keep them busy, checking the skies for wagtails, starlings and orioles. What is more, if you are geared towards reptiles you could come across the spotted thick toed gecko, the spotted bush snake or the white throated monitor. Do not trouble yourself about these creepies crawling into your bed frame, as there are many deluxe options for overnight safari guests. No matter what you choose, you can guess that it will be a wholly cutting edge and wild holiday!
