South Africa: Eland & Bontebok Antelopes

Da Hoop Nature Reserve yielded two more species of antelopes that i haven’t seen anywhere before – the colorful bontebok and eland. Bontebok has a narrow range in South Africa only and is rarely seen, although it is common in Da Hoop. Eland is the world’s largest antelope and can weigh up to 2000 lb. They are fairly widespread all over Africa but not very common in any specific place.
