The Mopani/Tzendze area is also a brilliant area for Reedbuck. Apart from being a premier carnivore area it also is the best area for the less common antelope species which are also well represented. Reedbuck are best viewed on the Eastern Plains out of these 2 camps at all of the Shawu Windmills. Normally they announce your arrival with their shrill whistle call


Thanks indeed Jane! :dance: :dance: Strange that the Mopani area is usually considered a poor game-viewing area in general! :roll:

We always get our Reedbuck customers around Nshawu waterholes… on our last visit we saw 5 there in one morning (one being caught by 4 cheetahs!)

We had another two sightings at the Nshawu waterholes in July 2010!! It is the place to be if you are looking for them!

Hello and welcome, Leeukos!

Something seems not quite right with that reedbuck!?

It is the common one, but very small horns! :hmz:

Thanks, Tom!
