Pumbaa the best area I think to spot reedbucks are around letaba. To be specific go on the tropic of Capricorn loop.

On our last trip we saw 8 Reedbucks: a couple near Phabeni gate, a couple at the S11, 2 females around 10km north of Satara and then 4 (3 males, 1 female) 5 minutes later :D
Here are more pics of the 4, one of the adult males looked much healthier than the other one!

I always thought that the Capricorn Loop was near Mopani :hmz:

Was lucky with Reedbuck last trip, seen them close to Satara (near main road to Olifants), along the H10 halfway between Lower Sabie and Tshokwane, along S41 and S90 , close to Bangu waterhole.
I am sure they will appear in one of the stories in my TR :) :)

On our recent trip to KNP in December 2010 we saw 4 Reedbuck:
No Reedbuck at the Nshawu waterholes… a first for us!!

H1-4 Just North of Satara (@Aat might be from the same family …)

ImageImage

H1-1 Close to Pretriuskop (saw a male and female in the TALL Pretoriuskop grass)

Fayi Loop

Okay. Another photo of the Reedbuck. We saw them on the road to Giriyondo Borderpost, just past Makhadzi Picnic Spot. They were drinking from a marshy area next to the road.

GP thanks for the new pic...definitely a Normal Reedbuck. Mother and son. There used to be a huge Ram located at the picnic spot but now it seems a very territorial Bushbuck ram has taken over that spot. The Shawu drainage area to the East of Mopani Camp is probably the best place in Kruger to see Reedbuck and Pretorius Kop is a great area for them as well with its long grassy patches

Although not SanParks still a South African Park. This Reedbuck was seen in the Cape Vidal part of iSimangaliso Wetland Park, KZN, August 2011. A wet and very windy day.

All the best, Michael

I have seen many(incl. a small family with a very young one), in the Nshawu Marsh Lands to the east of Mopani, notably in July this year. However, the photos were terrible due to extreme early morning fog from this year.
