Mammal Watching Tours

The southern Africa sub-region has an astounding diversity of mammalian fauna. Close on 300 land-mammal species exist here including 75 bat species, 80 rodents, 37 carnivores and 45 ungulates. A further 55 marine mammals have been recorded along the coast and in the open oceans around Southern Africa.

The conservation efforts of this region’s wildlife authorities are highly regarded and as a result the region boasts many great wilderness areas, national parks, nature reserves and private wildlife sanctuaries. Among these are the world famous Kruger National Park with one of the highest mammal diversities of all the African parks, the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Botswana’s Chobe River and Okavango Delta, the vast expanses of Namibia and the Northern Kwazulu-Natal region with its game reserves, tropical coastline and dune forests.
