"Looking for some interesting African Animal facts?"

You already know the African continent is synonymous with African animals.

Are you also fascinated by wildlife animals in their natural habitat in the wide-open spaces of Africa?

During our many visits to wildlife destinations in Africa we have observed the behavior of the African safari animals and asked ourselves:

  • How do predators plan and co-ordinate their hunts?
  • Why do black rhinos have such bad tempers?
  • How is the body of a cheetah designed for speed?
  • How do giraffes fight for dominance?
  • Why do lion males kill young cubs?
