The Super 7 are the most sought after animals to spot when visiting the Kruger Park

 
 

Whenever we go to a game park or wildlife reserve the success of the visit is determined by how many of the "Big 5" we manage to spot...the Big 5 are, lion, rhino, buffalo, leopard and elephant. They are called the Big 5 because they are the most dangerous animals to hunt.
