Exotic safari art such as “Safari Lion” by Joe Sambataro, truly captures the beauty and elegance of some of Africa's “Big Five”. The “Big Five” is a list originating around the 19th century and was mainly used for poachers and hunters. However, in recent days the “Big Five” has become a list of animals that every safari visitor wants to catch a glimpse of. The list of the most sought after animals in Africa consists of the African lion, African elephant, Cape buffalo, African leopard, and the White/Black rhinoceros.
Many visitors to Africa do not manage to see the “Big Five” on their first try, which truly adds to the mystery and appeal as it brings people back time and time again. Exotic safari prints have been able to give people the adventures of the safari and the “Big Five” as they plan their next visit to one of the most captivating places on Earth.
