Went to Tembe Elephant park 2 years ago with a group of school kids. Red duikers were common, right next to the road, especially at the first hide/waterhole.

God bless,

Red duiker is common right in the center of St Lucia town - early mornings they graze in the parks and street verges.

Also common on the forested sections of the road to Cape Vidal and also in the Cape Vidal campsite area.

You are likely to see ten or more a day. :D

I have seen Red Duiker in Kruger, just near Skukuza camp. Was about 8 years ago. Unfortunatley no photo's (days before digital), only VHS video.

Hi,

I have seen one in Dec 2009 in the first loop after Mooiplaas coming from Tsendze. Very early morning and I was to slow with the camera. But that was the only time.
