Not nearly as great a shot as some of you guys' :mrgreen: but finally saw one and got a record pic at least. We only saw the one and it was just hanging on to the back of the small herd of Tsessebe. Seen at Thihongonyeni waterhole in January 2012.

Hi Everyone.
Just have to share my Mofhartbees sighting on the Voortrekker road in July 2012.
Image
They were right beside the road. We where so lucky to see these beautifull and scarce antelope.

What amazed me was the people driving by not stopping. Cleary not knowing what animal this is and how much they where missing out on. Why do those people even go to the Kruger?
