In Africa, the big five game animals are the African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, as well as White/Black rhinoceros. The term big five game (sometimes quoted as “Big Five”) was coined by big-game hunters and refers to the five most difficult animals in Africa to hunt on foot. The term is popular in most tourist as well as wildlife guides that discuss African wildlife safaris. The members of the Big Five are classified by the difficulty in hunting them as well as the danger involved.
The big five are among the most dangerous, yet most popular species for big game hunters to hunt.
The 1990 and later releases of South African rand banknotes feature a different big-five animal on each denomination.
