Safari animals are animals that inhabit the vast savanna plains of sub-Saharan Africa. Known for being home to some of the most exotic, diverse, and sought-after animals on the planet that include lions, leopards, elephants, rhinoceroses, and giraffes, African savannas and wetlands are rich ecosystems that allow these animals to thrive.

Giraffe
Comparison of a Giraffe to the size of a human with dimensions for overall height and width

Giraffes, the world’s tallest mammals, are known for their long necks and legs, ossicone horns, and distinct spotted coat patterns. Roaming open savannas and woodlands in herds, giraffes forage for leaves, fruits and flowers at treetop heights that other mammals cannot reach.

The typical Giraffe has an overall height of 18’-20’ (5.5-6.0 m) and body length of 7.5’-8.5' (2.2-2.6 m). An average Giraffe weighs between 1,750-2,800 lb (795-1,270 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 25 years.

African Dormouse

The African Dormouse, also known as the woodland dormouse, is a kind of tiny rodent showing similarities in appearance to that of a squirrel in combination with features of a mouse. Scientifically identified as Graphiurus murinus, the wild African Dormouse lives in subtropical or tropical climates (native to Africa as its name suggests).

Physically, the African Dormouse is distinguished by large eyes, a long bushy tail, and silky coat. Its coloration includes gray/brown streaks along its body and white found on its cheeks and underbelly. The African Dormouse is a social animal, but quiet in vocalization and shy around people as pets.

African Dormice have a height of 1.4”-2” (3.5-5 cm), body length between 2.75”-3.9” (7-10 cm), and an overall weight in the range of .6-1.2 oz (18-34 g). The tail length of an African Dormouse is 2.4”-4.3” (6-11 cm). African Dormice have a typical lifespan of 4 years in the wild and up to 5-6 years in captivity.

Common Warthog
Dimensioned comparison drawing of the Common Warthog compared to an average person

Common Warthogs are medium-sized wild pigs with a large head that is accompanied by large tusks that can grow up to 25 inches (63.5 cm). Having those large tusks helps the warthog defend itself from its larger prey.

Warthogs have bristly black hair covering their black and/or brown skin. They are also omnivores but mainly stick to a plant-based diet since they only eat meat if they need too. Warthogs can be found all over Africa as they are not territorial and travel to find their suitable home. Warthogs are not the prettiest animal, but they are one of the smartest in Africa.

Common Warthogs have a height between 25”-33” (64-84 cm), body length of 36”-60” (91-152 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 120-250 lb (55-110 k)g. The lifespan of a Common Warthog is typically 15-18 years in the wild, or up to 20 years in captivity.

African Lion
Comparison of the size of a male and female Lion seen from the front profile

African Lions are large felines with compact and powerful bodies for hunting prey. Characterized by their yellow-gold coats and prominent manes (on males), lions are the world’s most social cats and live in communities called prides. Lions inhabit a range of habitats from open plains, to grasslands, savannas, and forests.

The average Lion has an overall height of 44"-50" (1.1-1.3 m), withers height of 34"-40" (.9-1.0 m), and body length of 54"-78" (1.4-2 m). A typical Lion weighs between 270-420 lb (120-190 kg) and has a lifespan of roughly 10-15 years (wild), 30 (captivity).

Hyena
Size comparison of a Hyena to a human man with dimensions

Hyenas are cat-like carnivorous mammals that are essential scavengers within the African ecosystem. Living together in large communal groups (clans) of up to 80, hyenas are known for feeding on the remains leftover by other predators though they are also skilled hunters of wildebeest, antelope, snakes, birds, lizards, and insects.

The average Hyena has an overall height of 38.0” (97 cm), withers height of 29.5”-33.5” (75-85 cm), and body length of 47.0”-59.0” (120-150 cm). A typical Hyena weighs between 110-190 lb (50-86 kg) and has a lifespan of roughly 25 years.
