I have seen numbers quoted (not very recently ) of 30-40 . I have seen one near Punda , the solitray one at Tihongonyeni (although he hasn't been seen recently based on my reading of this forum) , and a small group near Pretoriuskop .

Those are interesting numbers, Highbury, especially considering the years-long breeding programme they had near Pretoriuskop. I have only seen the species twice - a solitary individual in each case - and both times, many years apart, in the Eastern section near Mopani.

Hey everyone,
Saw a lone male on the Voortrekker Road about 5km from Pretoriouskop last week.
Was just wondering if anyone else has seen it and whether it is part of a herd or not.
With their extremely low numbers, it seems a bit sad that this guy was all by himself.
Would be a lonely existance.
