Tanzania 2016 - Animal checklist

       
 

Missed a few animal species I hoped to find, but with a total of 44 mammalian (and the croc, tortoise and gekko), the trip was OK compared to my FIVE earlier African safaris. All these mammals are easily identifiable, maybe expect for the hyraxes seen from a distance and where there is no ID documentation photos.

T = Tarangire, S = Serengeti, N = Ngorongoro, B = Bagamoyo (coast, including Sadaani NP)
