Puku

The puku is a relatively common antelope in Zambia. It can be distinguished from the impala by its more rough coat. Pukus like the marshy grasslands in the Kafue and Luangwa valley. The southern most region where pukus occur is Chobe National Park in Botswana.

Klipspringers

This cute couple is Mr. and Mrs. Klipspringer. Klipspringers – literally it means ‘rock jumper’ – are small antilopes, reaching a maximum shoulder height of 60cm. They enjoy acrobatic jumps on rocky outcrops. Because their habitat is often inaccessible and commercially not interesting, klipspringers are doing relatively well in large parts of Africa.
