Common Waterbuck

The Common Waterbuck has waterproof fur with an unpleasant musky smell. Only the males have horns, and they are strongly ringed. Males are territorial. Females live in constantly changing groups visiting various male territories. Young males live in bachelor herds once they are a year old, but their presence for grazing is tolerated by both territorial males and female groups.

We have traveled back south a little to visit Lewa Downs Wildlife Conservancy on the slopes of Mt. Kenya.
