(Kobus ellipsiprymnus) standing in Chobe Nationalpark. The only one I saw during the day of our park visite.
Waterbuck stand 120 to 136 centimetres (47 to 54 in) at the shoulder.[2] Males weigh 200300 kilograms (440660 lb) and females 160200 kilograms. Waterbuck are found in scrub and savanna areas near water where they eat grass. Despite its name, the waterbuck does not spend much time in the water, but will take refuge there to escape predators. Waterbuck are diurnal.
