Hi There,

Came across this springbok with two calves near Monro in the Kgalagadi, Oct 2012, apparently a fairly rare occurrence?

:congrats: Mikegoose.

You must be really lucky to come across that. I have never seen Springbok in thw WILD. Because I have only visited one National Park my whole life which happens to be Kruger.

Morning all, just got back from KTP - had an amazing time with wonderful sightings. We sat near urikaruus
for an hour and a half watching 3 springbok give birth. Will post pic as some as I have them sorted.

Eventually we counted groups of 5-9 babies together a day or 2 later. However, the leopard and cheetahs feasted well and we saw the same leopard with 3 different kills (these new born babies) in 3 consecutive days. This not to mention the cheetah in the same area.
