During our meanderings through Kruger we have seen Roan every now and again. but usually only alone or in small groups of 2 or 3 together.
On 06-09-2016 we visited Shipandani hide with my parents and left again towards the tar road.
Coming up the hill just after we crossed the low water bridge we came across this group of about 25 Roan.
Needless to say I was completely ecstatic.
We followed them for the better part of an hour as they were dodging us through the brown Mopani trees.

Trip to Kruger NP 2016 (October – November) New series of Stories

Thanks for all the comments regarding the Eland story

12 – Roan Antelope

The northern regions do have some Antelopes you (almost) don’t see in the central or southern regions. We call it the triple A – Antelopes: Eland, Roan and Sable
After stories about Sable and Eland it’s now time for Roan
And yes…we were lucky again to see them several times during our trip

First time was along the Capricorn Loop in the Mopani region
I almost passed him because he was doing a nap near some bush, but he could not escape from my camera

I asked him friendly to get up and promised him to show him on internet … he did and I did... :-0

This was the first sighting with Roan.

4 days later… driving in the northern region we had a great sighting with Roan close to Boyela waterhole.

-
Image
-

Always great to see young ones with them. We counted 14 of them

-

They were on their way to the waterhole , but this was occupied by many elephant bulls so they hesitated and went back to the other side of the road. It was very dry and you can see they were a bit thin.

Posing in front of the palm trees… beautiful

Next day….
Another sighting with Roan , this time a family of 7

-

and

Suddenly they turned around and moved away.

3 days later… about 10 km north of Babalala, a bit on a distance but this area was much more green.

Sunrise and with better light I will finish this story about Roan

-

This was about the triple A – Antelopes, very lucky with seeing them all and so many times Roan, it was a real pleasure and love to share this with you


Hope you like it

Aat & Elly
