I very often find Klipspringer at the junction of the Napi road and the H3. One of many sightings there.

Here is a photo of the Klipspringer on the koppie at Shabeniloop.
What do you think of the lenght of its horns? Looks like a record size.

On a recent trip to Kruger, we came across two klipspringers, a male and female, near Malelane. The strange thing is, they were very far from any mountainous regions, which is where klipspringer usually are. They were in a big hurry, so I had no time to photograph them... :(

I have seen them often on the H4-1 at Lubyelubye and also keep your eye out at the Kruger tablets on the H 1-2

Augrabies Klipspringer country, an amazing place with the most beautiful nature en great wildlife. We saw lots of klipspringers and even the black Eagle. We were there in Juli so that the Falls were not that big but still very impressive. Look at the video what we saw. 8)

On my first visit to KNP, and I have no idea where, I remember being waved down by a Frenchman and directed to an oribi sighting. When we arrived we couldn't see anything but a klipspringer high above us, so my Q is:

Are oribi and klipspringer similar in appearance?

The klipspringer has a brown coat speckled with black, the underbelly not very conspicuous as it is a shade lighter brown. They also have large black 'tear marks' in the corner of their eyes. The klipspringer is found most commonly in rocky habitats, although I have seen them in scrub before as they wander long distances.

The oribi is solid brown with a conspicuous white under-belly. Their tails are black on the top and they have black spots under the ears. They are found in open grassland, especially with short grass.

The oribi is only found in the Pretoriaskop area in Kruger as far as I know :hmz:

Hope this helped :D
