The Little Five of the Animal Kingdom
Tanzania is famed for its large numbers of the famous Big Five (Lion, Leopard, Elephant, Rhino, Buffalo). Many of us are unaware that Tanzania is also known for the Small Five or the Little Five. These are wonderful little creatures whose names correspond to the big five, yet are much smaller. Tanzania provides some great opportunities to spot these species while on safari, especially with the eagle eyes of an excellent guide.
