More Info On Kruger's Grey Rhebok

The Grey Rhebok is a rare species in the Kruger, but are always present in the mountain bushveld of the southern Kruger. They blend in very well with their grey/brown coat and are difficult to spot. The Grey Rhebok graze and browse in the Kruger and have a few predators on the rocky outcrops where they occur: Large Eagles, African Rock Python, Caracal and Leopard. If you manage to get a glimpse of these small graceful antelope, treasure it, as you do not see them often.
