The "Big Five game" was a phrase coined by white settler hunters in colonial Africa to refer to the five animals that were most difficult to hunt on foot. These animals consist of the Lion, the African Elephant, the Cape Buffalo, leopard, and the rhinoceros. The term does not refer to size as one may think, but rather to the difficulty and danger involved in hunting them. The term is still used in most tourist and wildlife guides that discuss African Safaris. Countries where all the "Big Five" can be found include Namibia, Kenya, South Africa, Congo, Tanzania, Zimbabwe and Botswana.
