All Creatures Great & Small
“When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world” — John Muir
Africa is the home of many things: mountains tall and valleys deep, a collage of cultures as old as time, a variety of landscapes each one more beautiful than the last.
But without doubt, there is one thing that Africa has got that you just cannot get anywhere else in the world, and that is WILDLIFE! From the world's largest land mammal (Elephant), the largest ape (Gorilla), the largest antelope (Eland), the largest cat (Lion), the fastest land mammal (Cheetah), the largest bird (Ostrich), the greatest land migration (the Wildebeest migration)... we could continue with the list of African animal superlatives for a while! But it is also all about the little things, not just the Big 5 but also the Little 5, the Secretive 5, the Bird Big 5... again, the list does go on! If it is your first time to Africa, no doubt you will be chomping at the bit to tick off the Big 5 (Elephant, Lion, Leopard, Rhino, Buffalo), but you will soon learn that it is about Mother Nature herself and there are very few places where she is as abundant as Africa.
Mother Africa is home to it all and BelAfrique is your passport to all the African creatures great and small.
