My first and only sighting of an Eland in Kruger was at Boyela last November. I already saw the Eland from a far distance but it took half an hour until it came to the waterhole which was occupied by an Elephant. On the first pic you see it on the right. As soon as the Ellie left the stage the Eland and a Tssessebe came to drink :dance:

I have read that those Eland released near Pkop from an antelope camp.
The Eland died from ticks. It is not their natural area

We saw small herds of Eland on the Tropic of Capricorn Loop, most days in late May 2013. They were very aware of our presence and they were only distant photo opportunities.
