Waterbuck in NNP

Common  waterbuck in Nairobi National Park: not a numerous species in what is a predominantly savannah park…

There are two separate populations in the park: in the Athi Basin & to the West, in the Langata Forest.

The latter population (in the Langata Forest, which is ideal habitat) is definitely increasing: could this be because lions prefer the grasslands of the Athi Basin, where there are more prey animals (including waterbuck?)

Nairobi National Park boasts no less than 16 sp. of antelope: what a refuge for these beautiful ungulates.
