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, Johnny Clegg & Savuka), is featured on this album, lending it part of its name. The song "Scatterlings of Africa" was also featured in the 1988 film Rain Man.
