The best time for observing the animals is the dry winter season. Then the grass is low and bushes and trees don't have leaves, so that one can have an unobstructed view.

Antelopes in the Kruger

Impalas in the Kruger Park

Antelopes are part of the large group of horn carriers (bovidae).

In contrast to the animals carrying antlers, they have their horns lifelong.

In most of the species only the male has horns, in some they are common to both genders.

Of the impalas alone, the most widely spread species, there are an estimated 100,000 individuals living in South Africa, mainly in the Kruger Park.

Kudu in the Kruger Park

We can also see kudus which can jump over 2.50m high fences.

Kudus have stripes and spots on the body, and most have a chevron of white hair on the forehead between the eyes.

Female greater kudus are noticeably smaller than the males.

One can also find the waterbuck, a large and robust animal that feeds in the mornings and at night, and rests and ruminates the rest of the time.
