Kudu
Impala

Kudu possess excellent sight, scent and hearing abilities. When these animals are alarmed, their call is a loud bark. When suspicious, they will remain motionless, hidden in vegetation.

When is the best time to spot the Kudu? A good time to spot Kudu is in the late afternoon at waterholes. They are not as easily seen as the buffalo and move out in open areas to feed late in the afternoon
