As far as I am aware Giant Anteaters are indigenous to South and Central America, so you wouldn't find them at the Nkorho Cam.

The two mammals which you may find at the cam whose diet is predominantly termites and ants are the Aardvark and the Pangolin - both are nocturnal, extremely shy and seldom seen.

I was a guide in the area for about 5 years and saw Aardvark on four separate occassions and never once saw a Pangolin.
