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.

Serval
Comparison illustration of the size of a Serval to a typical person

The Serval (Leptailurus serval) is a slender, medium-sized cat native to Africa. It inhabits semi-arid regions near the Mediterranean Sea and avoids rainforests. Servals have a small head, large ears, and a yellow to red-brown coat with spots and stripes.

The black markings are extensive and vary in size along its body. Relative to its body size, the Serval has the longest legs of any cat—with long toes as well. The Serval is solitary and remains active throughout the day as well as at night.

Servals have a shoulder height between 21”-26” (53-66 cm), body length of 23”-36” (58-91 cm), and weight in the range of 15-40 lb (7-18 kg). The tail of a Serval is 8”-16” (20-41 cm) in length. Servals have a typical lifespan of 10-12 years in the wild and up to 20 years 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.

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 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).

Cheetah
Illustration with dimensions comparing the size of an average Cheetah to a human man

Cheetahs are big cats famed for being the world’s fastest land mammals. Characterized by their slender bodies, distinctive spotted coats, long thin legs, deep chests and small heads, cheetahs are talented daytime hunters that chase gazelles with bursts of speed that can go from 0-60 mph | 27 km/h in three seconds.

The typical Cheetah has an overall height of 28”-35” (70–90 cm) and body length of 44”-59” (112-150 cm). An average Cheetah weighs between 77-143 lb (35-65 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 10-12 years.
