Camp Dwellers

The bush buck are allowed to stay inside the camp and they reportedly don't mind when people approach them.  But I thought they weren't that secure and tended to run away.  Of course they are much safer from predators inside the grounds but they are free to leave if they wish.

The buck is shown above and the doe to the right.

They have patches or spots of white on the chest, tail, legs and neck plus the band of white at the base of the neck.  They are 25-35 inches at the shoulder, not overly big.  Their most important requirement is good cover to provide shelter and food.
