Buck ID
by: Jenny

Hi Alison

It looks like a Male Steenbok/Steinbuck, I say this because of the shape of the horns, the colour, being a light tan with white under it's tummy and the size and shape of it's ears. A male Steinbuck's weight is about 11kg and stands about 50cm high, they are common in the Kruger but very shy and usually they are found in pairs.

Many thanks for asking us to identify it for you, I hope this information helps.

"It's 768 pages of the most amazing information. It consists of, well, everything really. Photography info...area info...hidden roads..special places....what they have seen almost road by road. Where to stay just outside the information. It takes quite a lot to impress me but I really feel that this book, which was 7 years in the making, is exceptional."            - Janey Coetzee, founder of CAROK (Camps and Roads of Kruger)  South Africa
