Who you or the Roan?

We often saw them in the Nshawu area, a little herd of six, one cow was heavily pregnant during May 2011.

Nice photo.

The Roan, he was heading east.

Has quite a distinctive horn.

I am sure he is traceable if spotted again.

Wifey says thanks for photo compliment. :k

Thanks for the nice photographs of very special animals, we regularly saw them on the Capricorn loop and also at Babalala.

I have just returned from the area where we did some intensive searching and never saw any.

Wonderful sighting of these very special animals, seem to be the same herd that also frequents/ed the Babalala area.

When were these photographs taken?

Seen in July 2011, on the S50 close to Grootvleidam (South-East of Shingwedzi)

It was a group of at least 15, including a few calves

I think the reason for the question is because the numbers of these animals were drastically reduced due to a recent outbreak of anthrax :cry: So , obviously the chances of seeing them would also be drastically reduced :( .

Correct Okie.

Of the Roan antelope were trans-located to the TFNP where they are doing well.
