Did you know that...
... you do not have to travel to Africa to see the Big Five?

You can do this in the Veluwe, too! These Big Five may not be lions or buffalos, but when it comes to size the Big Five of the Veluwe comes pretty close.

The Big Five of the Veluwe

We are, of course, talking about Highland cattle, red deer, wild boars, roe deer, and foxes. Some even talk about a Big Six or Big Seven, because the badger and the mouflon would not be out of place in this list.

When you go hiking or cycling through the varied landscape of the Veluwe in the early hours, chances are you will encounter one or more of these beautiful animals in real life. At various locations in the Veluwe, special wildlife arenas were made where the Big Five often come to graze or drink.
