Very informative, thanks Gmlsmit. Interesting to note the habitat change that obviously must have taken place since that record sable bull was shot at Tshokwane in 1898. You don't find any sable in that area anymore, except for the small population to the west of Tshokwane south of Hlanguleni picnic-area.

I would like to add the herd of Sable in the Orpen-Talamati area.
I have seen Sable as far East as the S36 and closer to Talamati.
At the time I did not take note of the numbers unfortunately.

During our recent trip in March 2013, we came across a herd of 9 Sables on the H1-2.

Thanks for the photos, we seem to share a feeling about the Hippotragus species.
