The ANTELOPES of Thanda

On safari we talk a lot about the big five and most of the pictures we post are about them. The antelopes are often overlooked in photography even if one sees them far more often than the Big Five.

Over the last few days I have introduced the five antelope species, which I am seeing most on my game drives: Impala, Wildebeest, Nyala, Kudu and Waterbuck.

In this collage I have included the other seven species living on Thanda. Some of them are not seen so often, but they are around.
