Continuing on our Antelopes of Africa theme, this - and the next few posts - are about one of the most elegant of the antelopes, the humble Oryx. An animal that is essentially a unicorn… except their horns grew a different direction. Oryx, otherwise known as their Afrikaans name “Gemsbok” – which are sexually monomorphic, meaning both males and females possess horns – are absolute survivors when it comes to side-stepping predation and tolerating the harshest of environments.

In May-June 2020, our nature photography photo theme is: "The Antelopes of Africa, and the Critters that Eat Them". This theme is all about recognising the incredible diversity of antelopes found in Africa (72 of 91 species worldwide), how and why they've evolved, and what predators have evolved in unison to eat them, maintaining the wonderful Circle of Life. I'll start off this theme with a little insight into the world of antelopes, 29 of which are visible on RAW Worldwide Safaris.

When passing through a Roadhouse in southern Namibia, we met the family owners - and this cute baby Chacma baboon they were hand raising for eventual release back into his troop that live nearby. They were raising him because his mother was sadly killed by a passing car on the roads nearby. But he would've been released by now, and no, he's not in an area to pose any risk to people. The troop live in remote Fish River Canyon, and these baboons are wild, free, and don't conflict with people.
