RARE AND ELUSIVE MAMMAL TOURS
 
Sustain Safaris are experts in rare
and elusive mammal tours that showcase the rarer, shyer, scarcer, more cryptic and elusive mammals across the Southern African landscape. These are focused on the more seasoned wildlife enthusiasts and photographers who have already undertaken several safaris, and seen the “Big 5” mammals a few times, but are now determined to find the more elusive and seldom seen “second tier” mammals of the sub-region.
 
Our target rare and elusive mammals:

Aardvark, pangolin, honey badger, black-footed cat, aardwolf, wild dog, cheetah, serval, caracal, African striped weasel, striped polecat, bat-eared fox, cape fox, cape porcupine, suricate (meerkat), Southern African hedgehog, African civet, spotted-necked otter, cape clawless otter, black rhino, side-striped jackal, sengis (elephant shrews), black mongoose, suni, oribi, roan, rock rabbits, vlei rats, etc.
