Welcome! I know a few Swahili African animal names I learned from a book I read about a man who was a Big Game Officer, Conservation Officer, in Africa during the early/mid part of the 1900s.
Mbogo, Fisi, Tembo, Chui and Simba.
I also like the Serval, Caracal, Leopards, Panthers and Cheetahs. Welcome to CatForum!
