About Us

The African Fauna was built as a virtual home for all African wildlife fans. To get you settled in, we’ve made it simple for you to add comments to any page, ask all those wildlife questions you’ve been dying to have answered, and even post you own photos.

Our aim: Still in its infancy, our African Fauna aims to eventually cover all of Africa’s wildlife. Our species guide is growing daily and aims to catalogue as many of Africa’s animals as possible, from the smallest bug through to the chubbiest whale.

Our photo essays offer unique and amazing observations on animal behavior and our wildlife articles offer information on everything from how zebras got their stripes to discussions on elephant hunting lions.

What makes the AWG unique?

The African Fauna started in 2004 and for the past 15 years we have been compiling field observations and studies of wildlife throughout Africa. Our focus is on first hand observations of African wildlife. We’ve taken all the photos, documented all the first hand species observations, and finally stuck it all together in a neatly packaged site, so that we can share our love and knowledge of African wildlife with the world.
