Visitors to South Africa are always keen to catch a glimpse and a photo of the country’s celebrated Big 5:
elephant, lion, rhinoceros, buffalo and leopard.

While the big game is magnificent, and includes other giants such as giraffe, hippo, whale and dolphin, there is much more to South Africa’s wildlife. The country has some of the world’s richest biodiversity hotspots, with remarkable birdlife, abundant buck, small game and bizarre insects. To promote these, Zwahili Game lodge has another must-see list, the Little 5.
