Hi friends
I was thinking if it is possible to find an african rare camera image with all big 5 animals in it?

I wonder if there is a picture like that, it would certainly be rare!

 

It's even difficult to get 5 or more herbivores (not counting primates) in one picture!

During our second to last trip to Kruger in August 2015 we managed to spot 4 of the big 5 in one view (all minus rhino) but it would have been difficult to get them in one picture (I would have needed a camera that is capable of taking panorama shots). On the very same day I filmed three of them together, though (elephant, buffalo and lion).

If the buffalos come near rhino it will chase them and so the elephants.So the scene with all big 3 herbivores may last for a few seconds only.A crouching lion and watching leopard on a tree may not even move for several minutes.

So in a nutshell crouching cats eagerly waiting for attack may be captured easily but all 3 herbivore peacefully eating grass next to each other may not be easily possible.

  • buffalos don't want to be near predators
  • likewise  eles or rhinos with young want to avoid predators
  • leopards prefer to avoid lions

Wild Africa is in my blood. All life is sacred and interconnected. for the animals are fellow nations caught in the splendor and trevail of the earth.
