Sherry and I were driving on the Mata Mata road and at the southern detour, decided to take the high road. I know the waterholes are on the low roads but we've actually photographed more cats taking the high route. If birds and antelope are your objective the low route is normally the best.In any case we came upon these two Oryx fighting. Not the I'm stronger then you kind of thing but really fighting. We didn't stay for the outcome. The photos are graphic so some may not want to view.

the loser
by: Jenny

I always feel sorry for these guys when they fight because there is always a loser and some even die in the battle.
