Southern or mountain reedbuck? Seen just north of Lower Sabie on the H10.

Thanks, Mike. I had to reload the previous pic because Tinypic chopped of his legs. :evil:

Here is a side view - pic isn't very clear though. This one shows a dark patch under its ear which makes me think its a mountain reedbuck.

Mountain Reedbuck :clap: As said, the black patch under the ear, but the white underside of the bushy tail is also distinctive. Lovely pic :thumbs_up:

I have to agree with Pantera 100%.

That's a Southern Reedbuck. Adding to what has been said already, the big strong build is typical of the Southern, as opposed to the Mountain which is a much smaller and slender built animal.

Lovely, Sawubona :thumbs_up: I haven't seen reedbuck in so long that it is quite silly really! Are there specific areas that one should look closely for them, or are they widespread?

(Have you started your TR, BTW?)

I think near Satara you will see them, as we saw them twice.

Thanks Sawubona :thumbs_up: Will try there. I also know a lot of people say the H10, but maybe I've been unlucky there regarding reedbuck sightings recently. :roll:

Pretoriuskop's dirt road loops south of the camp are good for spotting reedbuck too, and Shitlave dam. :cam:

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
