There are about 100 mammal species to find in the park. It can be hard to tell the difference between the various types of the smaller animal species, especially if they’re nocturnal as you mightn’t get a good look at them in the dark:

  • Bats
  • Mice
  • Mongooses
  • Rats
  • Small antelope

Need help identifying Kruger National Park animals so you can mark them off your animal tick list? Or if you’re just interested in learning more about the animals, get an animal guide to help. We use The Mammal Guide Of South Africa. It’s colour pictures and details of the size of each animal are very useful.

If you’re interested in bird life and want to track them too, we have a Kruger National Park bird list which you can also download for free and keep.
