Sable antelope.

This reserve is a peculiar place. Several species have been reintroduced after going extinct due to poaching. Species (such as the nyala) never existed in the area, but they have been introduced nonetheless.

The reserve now protects elephants, buffaloes, some lions, leopards, and rhinoceros (Big 5) and several species of antelope. Chance of seeing elephants is very good. However, for the other members of the Big 5, sightings are very rare.
