    Rista BGuide seems clear but the achievement is not unlocking. Been having issues for the past week with almost all achievements not unlocking when they should. Tried your method and found some rhinos in Africa to fly over and after over 10 attempts between the two locations no achievement. Maybe it will show up later. Definitely a game that I need to put aside until it functions properly as I keep running into a variety of bugs.

    RudigerThe guide is clear and works, but my guess is that some animal groups may not be coded properly. For example, I tried Etosha Pan rhinos for a while with no luck, but Blue Nile giraffes worked first time.

    If working, you can get this achievement by going to World Map / Free Flight, and typing "Fauna" into the search bar to see a list of viewable animals. Choose an animal and a slow plane, during the day time, and set out on your journey.

    Once you are in the air, use cockpit view, locate the waypoint, enable the smartcam through the s key on your keyboard, and fly by the animals at a slow speed, with close distance while maintaining smartcam focus for the achievement.

    Change smartcam to "toggle" for this to be easier.

    This was fixed as of the September 16, 2020 patch.

    cinkotaTo expand on previous answers - you don't need all assists, just "fauna markers - on" under POI. Triggered for me after enabling that setting.

    Also the "game of the year" edition added the VoloCity VTOL that is perfect for POI achievements.

    KGI KlikoNLI spawned near the Allasund (or something like that) Seagulls in the VTOL. Switched on Smart Cam on Seagulls, from the bar. I first had to lower and fly more towards the direction the Smart Cam pointed, to be close enough to count. They fly around the fjord area, so not necessary exact at the marker.
