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.

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.

Hippopotamus
Drawing comparing the scale of a hippopotamus to a human with dimensions for height and length

Hippopotamuses, or hippos for short, are large semiaquatic mammals found in sub-Saharan Africa. Commonly sighted in rivers, swamps and lakes, the hippopotamus is an herbivore that lives mostly in the water when not feeding on nearby grasses. The hippo is the third-largest land mammal on the planet.

The typical Hippopotamus has an overall height of 54.0"-78.0" (1.4-2 m) and body length of 114.0"-168.0" (9’6"-14’) (2.9-4.3 m). An average Hippopotamus weighs between 3,100-8,800 lb (1,500-4,000 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 40-50 years.

African Elephant
Drawing with length and height dimensions of an African Elephant from the side compared to a person

Elephants are the largest land mammals on Earth. These herbivorous animals are identified by their unique features such as their long trunks for breathing, gathering water, and grabbing objects, ivory tusks used as weapons and tools for foraging, and large ears that flap to control body temperature. Elephants tend to stay near bodies of water and various species have adapted to savannahs, forests, deserts and marsh environments. Though elephants are listed as both vulnerable and endangered today, when protected in the wild they can live up to 70 years.

The typical African Elephant has an overall height of 8’3”-13’ (2.5-4 m) and body length of 10’-16’6” (3-5 m). An average African Elephant weighs between 5,500-15,400 lb (2,500-7,000 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 70 years.

Bat-Eared Fox

The Bat-Eared Fox (Otocyon megalotis) is a species that was named for its large ears that are used for hearing and regulating its temperature. They have sand-gray fur, lighter fur on their underside, and darker fur along their eyes and muzzle. They typically live in the African Savana. Bat-Eared Foxes are mostly insectivores and eat ants, beetles, crickets, grasshoppers, millipedes, moths, scorpions, and spiders. The Bat-Eared fox is nocturnal 85% of the time even though they are highly social animals and easily gets along with others.

Bat-Eared Foxs have a shoulder height of 12”-15” (30-38 cm), body length between 18”-26” (46-66 cm), and an overall weight in the range of 7-12 lb (3-5 kg). The typical lifespan of a Bat-Eared Fox is 5-7 years in the wild) and up to 12-16 years when raised in captivity.

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.
