British Indian Ocean Territory

The nickname "Big Five" was adopted by big game hunters to describe the five most difficult animals to catch on foot in Africa. And see the Big Five in the wild is the objective of most adventure lovers who explore East Africa.

The Big Five are among the most deadly, yet most attractive, species to capture for big game hunters. Along with the elephant, leopard, buffalo, and rhino, the lion is the most prominent figure in the famous 'Big Five' club. The lion has long been known as the "King of Beasts."

Although Uganda is arguably a Big Five safari location, comparing it to safaris available in Kenya and Tanzania would be deceptive. It's doubtful that you'll spot the famous Big Five while on vacation here, but that doesn't mean the wildlife isn't numerous and diverse. Explore Queen Elizabeth National Park in the southwest, in which a diverse environment is home to a variety of creatures such as leopards, hippos, and lions, as well as over 600 bird species.
