I would also like to see one, because we really didn't appreciate the one we saw, but now it would be an amazing sighting!! :dance:

I remember seeing one about 50 years ago near Pafuri picnic site. We could not believe our eyes! Never saw one again though.

Incredible! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: Recently i red the Getaway and got the idea that they don't find it as extinct in the KNP.

If they are still around they are very rare - I seem to remember one of the forumites had a sighting of a suni up in the Punda Maria area in the last year or two...we have been fortunate enough to see suni in KZN and they really are tiny! Similar looking to a steenbok but very easy to differentiate between the two!
