For North american big game I think you really only need 2, A good 6-6.5mm for pronghorn and deer that spits lead around the 3000fps mark with heavy bullets and a good .338 that hits around the same velocity with the midweight bullets for elk, moose and bear. For Africa you can add a heavy rifle of at least .375 for dangerous game and keep the .338 for smaller plains game.
