    waterbuck

    One of the larger of the Kruger Antelope. These are numerous but unlike the impala, they are more reclusive and tend to be solitary.

    Vervet Monkey

    Abundant but difficult to spot. These are one of Kruger's 2 types of monkeys. To find them watch low trees, the monkeys will be on the underside of the canopy.

    Warthogs are also numerous throughout Kruger. They travel in family groups and it's rare to see them alone.

    Giraffes

    It may have been just the luck of the draw but giraffes although plentiful in the park seemed more shy and less likely to venture close to the roads.

    Duiker

    These are extremely small, almost rabbit size, antelope. They are very shy and are rarely spotted. Our guide claimed that he had seen only a few in his years at the park.

    Hyenas

    Hyenas are found in groups always on the hunt for “left overs” from other predators. However they are also good hunters and can be found hunting smaller game.

    Waterbuck

    Another beautiful antelope normaly found in herds close to water is the Waterbuck. If one sees them from the rear it looks like someone has painted a toilet seat on their back :-)

    Warthogs

    This little creature browses the high grass during the day. When it gives chase and runs away its tail rises up to indicate to the youngsters where to follow.
