When i was younger (15 years ago) an used to go with my parents to Kruger, we would see them semi-regularly, at least every second trip.

I have just realised (and hence replied with this post) that i probably havent seen one in the last 10 years?

Number really as low as 200-250?

Great photos RP and Yolandé. 8)
We have been quite lucky to have Tsessebe sighting every time we were in the north of Kruger….except my last visit to the north when I was accompanied by Zebra…she so much wanted to see them…at least she got a Eland sighting near Punda :D

My SO and I also had some great sightings in Mokala NP recently.

Being pretty ignorant, I hadn't realised that this was a lucky sighting! We saw these near Mopani in October.

Hi All,
I am an annual visitor to KNP and have seen Hartebeest/Tsessebe many times. The problem is that I am never certain which is which even though I have various books. I have found the best place to see them is on the Capricorn Loop near Mopani and in the north by Klopperfontein, although I have also seen them near Pretoriuskop and Letaba. Here are a few I have seen on my last couple of trips and perhaps someone would comment.
ImageThis male was seen near Pretoriuskop in Nov 2007 and I have seen him previously quite near the camp. I am fairly certain that this is a Hartebeest.
ImageThese were near Tihongonyeni w/hole and there were about 30 - there appeared to be 3 groups who had come together at the w/hole. Hartebeest or Tsessebe?
ImageImageThe last 2 pictures were from a group of 10 near Klopperfontein last Nov and I am now completley confused. Bond UK
