Tanzania: Serenegeti NP – Steenbok Antelopes

The hilly and foresty landscapes of the northern Serengeti National Park is home to animal species that are not usually found in flat savanna grasslands. Like the rather rare Steenbok antelopes. Steenboks look similar to oribi, they are usually solitary or in pairs. They are not grazers like many other antelope species, but rather browsers, feeding on small bushes. They don’t drink water at all, taking all the water they need from the foliage. They are also diurnal, active both day and night, and their preferred way of escaping predators is actually hiding still in the tall grass, although when discovered and chased, they will do an insane zigging and zagging to confuse the predators.
