An annotated checklist of the mammals recorded by direct or indirect means on or near the Augrabies Falls National Park, is provided. Speculations are offered as to which species have become locally extinct during historical times. The , Orange River as a faunal dispersal corridor and barrier, is considered. A numerical analysis to determine whether the Augra-
bies Falls district falls within the Namib or the South West Arid biotic zone, is discussed.
