We often get asked by our guests how fast certain animals can run, so here are the running speeds of a few common African animals.
African lion 80-100km/h
White Rhino 45-50km/h
Olympic human athlete 35-37km/h
So it goes to show… that the next time you are out on a bush walk and an animal decides to come for a closer inspection of us humans, the best thing to do is not to run, since they are almost all faster than us.
