Black Rhino
Diceros Bicornis - The rarer of the two African species, black rhinos are no taller than a buffalo but twice as heavy. Namibia has more black rhinos than any other African nation which live not only in the National Parks but also wild and free in the North West of the country. Okaukuejo's floodlit waterhole in Etosha National Park is renowned for its nightly visits by these impressive animals
Leopard
Panthera Pardus – All the large African carnivores are present in Etosha and even the elusive leopard can be seen on a fairly regular basis. A superb stealth hunter, this beautiful cat’s strength matches its remarkable beauty. Able to drag more than its own body weight vertically up a tree it is considered to be the ultimate predator. When you are sat at a waterhole always check under the surrounding bushes where they often wait in ambush for their prey.
Elephant
Loxodonta Africana – Etosha’s elephants are thought to be some of the largest in Africa but often have small or sometimes no tusks at all due to a mineral deficiency in the soil. The waterholes in the National Park attract huge numbers of elephants particularly in the dry season, where they drink, swim and dust bathe on a daily basis.
Greater Kestrel
Falco Rupicoloides - is one of the largest falcon species with a wingspan of up to 84cm. Fairly widespread they are found in open grasslands around southern Africa. They hunt from prominent perches so give great photographic opportunities to catch them in flight as long as you have the patience.
Lion
Panthera Leo - the largest African carnivore with males weighing up to 189kg Powerful predators who mostly live in family groups and hunt collectively. Namibia's lions not only live in its National Parks but also free-range throughout the northern part of the country and in particular in NW Namibia where desert adaptations help it survive. Unless they are asleep, lions always give photographers opportunities for dramatic action shots or entertaining interactions when there are cubs around.
Spotted Hyena
Crocuta Crocuta - the second largest African carnivore with a bite the equivalent to one and a half tons per square inch. Much misunderstood, this social predator lives in large clans with a complex social structure. Chudop waterhole in Eastern Etosha has a large den site nearby and is a favourite spot for photographing these unique mammals
Cheetah
Acinonyx Jubatus - the fastest land mammal on earth. Namibia is blessed with cheetah with an estimate of +/- 3,500, the majority of which live outside of the National Parks on farmland. Eastern Etosha is the best area to see them where they are often seen hunting along the Pan's edge and using termite mounds as vantage points.
Giraffe
Giraffa Camelopardalis - the southern giraffe species is widely spread in both Etosha National Park and Damaraland as well as along the Caprivi Strip. Unlike most herbivores they have a loose social structure, gregarious but not in family herds. Preferring Acacia leaves they are mostly found in eastern Etosha where the trees are more abundant and it is here that unusual sightings of them chewing bones for extra calcium is sometimes observed.
Common Wildebeest
Connochaetes Taurinus - a large high shouldered antelope with a broad muzzle and cow like horns. Often called the clown of the savanna wildebeest are often seen sharing the grasslands with zebra herds. An amusing animal to study, they are most interesting during the rut when the ritualised fighting between males is at its peak and after the rains in January when the cows give birth. The young are the most precocial of all antelope species with the calves on their feet and feeding in less than 4 minutes
Martial Eagle
Polemaetus Bellicosus - the largest of Africa's eagles weighing in at 6.5kg and with a wingspan of 6 feet 4 inches. This impressive raptor has a varied diet of small mammals including young antelopes and monkeys as well as reptiles and ground birds. This photograph was taken just after a Martial had killed a guinea fowl in central Etosha National Park

Your Safari operates sustainable and responsible practices in Namibia with both the environment and communities in mind.

Over 20 years we have endeavoured to support local conservation projects including the Africat Foundation and research into the free-ranging lions in the north-west of the country who come into conflict with the local community. The building of livestock kraals and appointments of Lion Guardians from local villages all help to reduce this human/wildlife conflict and protect the local people and their livestock enabling them to live alongside these magnificent carnivores.
