Are safari animals dangerous?

Safari Animals

No african safari is complete without seeing a pride of lions lying down lazily in the hot African sun. However, never be tempted to get out of your vehicle to snap close-up pictures of your wildlife adventure safari. This is the quickest way to die. The same goes for any other large wild animal you see on a safari. Treat them with the respect that they deserve.

Approach all big game with caution. Do not make sudden movements and do not make any noises. Elephants who turn towards you, flapping their ears and raising their trunks are dangerous. Rhinos are notorious for their bad moods and disturbing their line of vision can provoke them to charge you down. Hippopotamus can be the most dangerous of all the wild animals - it is estimated that they kill more people than any other animal.
