      Dear HughLansdown,
      Thanks for the indication.
      Dominic answered me and he is very honest and telling me he is not an expert on mammals, mainly small mammals, but only common large animals in nearby parks.

    I am currently writing a trip report from my visit to South Africa – also Cape Town area, but without guide. If you contact me, social media or via, I can send you the draft, should have some useful information

    I can provide some pins and suggestions on places to go for some species. you can email me at kyle t finn at gmail. most of the guides are bird focused, and I can share a few of those if you want to do some birding.

    Hi Esadalla,
    I am not sure if you are still around, but I am a mammal and birding tour operator and guide based in Somerset West, very near Cape Town, and I run rare mammal safaris throughout Southern Africa through my business Sustain Safaris ( If you would like to be guided or would like some advice, I am happy to assist. You can email me at: michael (at)

      Dear Michael, Unhappily I couldn’t read your message before. Congratulations! I searched the website and it is fantastic. I will keep it for my next trip to South Africa.
