Wow, Kelsey! There’s always something unexpected and amazing to see at Londolozi.

It seems nature is always full of surprises at Londolozi. Magical

Kelsey, thank you for the visual of the Klipspringers. They are very interesting antelopes. I hope this one survived the leopard encounter.

Could it be a Sharpe’s grysbok? They are somewhat similar in appearance esp the horns.

Interesting that this small antelope is so far away from its natural habitat. I hope for it that it he will have found a new and safe home before a predator gets him.

Lovely, when studying there was a reportage on Dick dicks, they seem very similar…. monogamy and guard of their territory. Maybe he losts his mate, or just bring young was looking for his first female.. anyway, it is a delightful view. The Xinkova female too, who else could have been so quick and smart than a leopard?

It is was a nice surprise Kelsey to see a foto the Klipspringer. They are very special and you hardly see them and when you do see them count yourself lucky. It is astounding that they mate for life and have their own little territory on the rocky outcrops. Maybe that lone Klipspringer is maybe looking g for a mate for life.

It’s interesting that the Klipspringer was seen in the grasslands, definitely far from his normal surroundings, but could he have been chased there? Do you have any idea what the population is for the Klipspringers? Thanks Kelsey for another interesting and informative post about this little elusive antelope.

Very cool and unusual klipspringer sighting Kelsey, made even cooler by the Xinkhova female’s pursuit!!!

If I were a buck I’d be a klip springer! So petite and agile … quite beautiful.

Thanks Kelsey, We love seeing Klipspringers and seeing them seem to dance from one rock to the other!
