We would usually be posting many pictures of many sightings across the range of wildlife watching holidays, safaris and specialist mammalwatching tours that we run around the world; but with the covid-19 pandemic meaning that travel is down around 95% there is a lack of trips currently.

So we are posting some of the sightings and pictures which our client in Namibia last month got, these latest pictures are of a variety of species seen throughout the stunning country of Namibia. Common Genets in the Kalahari and outskirts of Etosha National Park as well as Rock Hyrax in the rocky Waterberg Plateau escarpment, a small herd of wonderful Gemsbok in the Kalahari scrublands and a couple of the smaller predators of Etosha National Park which are the Common Slender Mongoose and the Southern Pale Chanting Goshawk and the national plant of Namibia the ancient and unique Welwitschia plant which is found on a narrow strip of gravel pan and desert along the Skeleton Coast.

These species are all fairly commonly encountered in Namibia on our safaris and you will have a very good chance of seeing all of these animals and dozens more on any of our specialist wildlife watching safaris including herpetology tours to Namibia, mammalwatching safaris and just general interest tours around the most stunning and photogenic country in Africa (in my opinion).

Enjoy these amazing pictures and if you are interested in a wildlife holiday which is either a general safari or specialist mammal watching trip to Namibia please contact us or visit our Namibia safari page.
