Hi Samuel, you write at the Spitzkoppe-section: “…2 black mongooses in very good conditions. Thanks to the mammalwatching community for explaining where to see such mongoose species”. I am heading there in a few weeks time; can you share the information where to look for them more precisely?
(If not public, mail is also good ofcourse) Thanks.
Hi Rick yiou can look at my trip report dot starters. https://www.mammalwatching.com/2017/12/14/namibia-2017-not-big-5/
And there are others in the Namibia page.
Hi Rick, no problem to share the information. In addition to the excellent report from Jon, the two black mongooses I saw where on the other side of the mountain compared to the campsites. It was in the premises of the Spitzkoppen lodge right next to their restaurant / swimming pool area early in the morning. I’m not sure the lodge area is open to non resident.

Great report and photos. Lucky to see all those cats in Etosha plus wild dogs elsewhere. Hope to see similar on delayed trip this October.
