Going in search of rare antelope in Northern Kruger

The northern parts of the Kruger National Park harbours populations of antelope rarely seen in the wild elsewhere in South Africa, and of course the Wild de Wets just love going in search of these special creatures.  Our recent visit during the winter school holidays, basing ourselves for nine nights at Shingwedzi Rest Camp, yielded wonderful encounters with Eland, Nyala, Sharpe’s Grysbok and Tsessebe (and we’ll just have to get back there soon to find the roan antelope, sable antelope, lichtenstein’s hartebeest and reedbuck that eluded us!)

    Amazing pictures!😊 The nyala antelope is very beautiful and I think the female is little more beautify then the bull. Otherwise, it is usually the males are more beautiful because the females are more camouflaged. Your knowledge about the animals in South Africa is very impressive!😃
