South Africa: Big Five

Today I got a great postcard from South Africa.

The card shows the animals of the Big Five as babies. Big Five was a term used by big game hunters for the five animals lion, rhinoceros, leopard, buffalo and elephant. The term refers not to the seize but to the difficulty in hunting them and the degree of danger involved. Today it is also used for tourist safaris.

With a great variety of stamps:
Handicrafts (nine from set of twenty seven) (issued 27-10-2010)

Thank You very much Marlize'!
