Scatterlings is a studio album from Juluka, a South African band led by Johnny Clegg and Sipho Mchunu. It was first released in 1982.

"Scatterlings of Africa", arguably the band's biggest hit (which would later be re-recorded to more international success by Juluka's successor band, Savuka), is featured on this album, lending it part of its name. The Savuka version of this song featured on the soundtrack of the 1988 film Rain Man.
