Sustain Safaris are experts in rare mammals tours that showcase the rarer and shyer mammals across the Southern African landscape. These are focused on the more seasoned wildlife enthusiasts and photographers who have already undertaken many safaris, and seen the “Big 5” mammals multiple times, but are now determined to find the more elusive and seldom seen “second tier” mammals of the sub-region.
