Southern Africa Travel Guide

Dassies


When you visit rocky areas you are likely to bump into a big, wooly guinea pig-like mammal called ‘dassie’ or ‘rock hyrax’. They usually live in large herds that can consist of dozens of animals. Dassies leave a tar-like mass of urine and dung that is traditionally used as an anti-inflammatory much like cortisone. Dassies have tusk-like incisors and are closely related to elephants.

TESTIMONIAL

Once again, a Big Thank You for organising our weekend at Garden Route Game Lodge. It was the first time for all of us at a game lodge, and I must say, it was an experience of a lifetime. We have nothing but praises for everyone and everything we came into contact with. It is a top class facility...
