A female bushbuck in it’s element in one of the many diverse habitats in Nairobi National Park, where it is common.

Although common (the most widespread antelope sp. in Africa) bushbuck are solitary creatures & usually difficult to spot (apart from in NNP!)

They can live easily near people, although they are widely hunted for their meat outside protected areas.

As shown here, if not persecuted, they can be very tolerant of people (this image actually from Aberdares NP)

The beautiful bushbuck is easily bayed up by pursuing dogs, but hopefully not in the protected areas of Nairobi National Park.
