We saw a herd off Pretoriuskop - One male with 3-4 females. The first time we have seen mountain reedbuck at KNP......

Thanks. This was a good trip for rare antelope sightings - 4 sightings of sable and a Sharpe's Grysbok.........

Thanks Sandeep - really rare antelope sightings. I have seen sable a few times but never a reedbuck. Next visit, I will keep my eyes open when in the vicinity of Pretoriuskop :thumbs_up:

I don't have my Kruger Map readily available with me, but I think it was the Fayi loop and off the loop there is a small loop which goes around a rocky hill. That is where we saw them

Well then that is half the battle won Leana. Now all you need to do is to learn how to whistle the correct tune :whistle:.................

First time I have seen a Reedbuck in Kruger.
Was on the H10, a few km north of the Mlondozi turnoff.

We saw 3 young common reedbuck rams last year October, north of Satara, just past the S127 junction. It was a bit of a shock as it was the first time I'd seen common reedbuck in the Kruger, and wasn't expecting to see them there. But it was great! They were just lying down, moving between the shade and grazing.

I haven't been lucky enough to see the mountain reedbuck just yet though... Hopefully this year :mrgreen:
