Even Botswana itself is home to 22 species of antelope. We were lucky to meet some of them, like the impalas, the small sized steenbok and the big eland, wildebeest (gnu), springbok, lechwe, tsessebe antelopes and more in Namibia like the beautiful oryx antelope. As they are not on top of the food chain, they are quite shy and easily frightened. We managed only once to get a little bit closer, when a small steenbok visited the campground of our tented camp in Mashatu Game Reserve, which was its home.
