Different species of Antelope are the predominant mammal
anywhere you travel in Tanzania
Each species has a different Swahili name. The most abundant on the
Serengeti plains are the Wildebeest or Gnu’s. There is a
separate section on the Wildebeest.
Antelope species can range in size from the very large Eland (up to
more than a ton), to the very small, Kirk’s Dikdik (3 to 5 pounds
and 12-18 inches in height).
Large numbers of Gazelle also range over the Serengeti. Here you will
see Impala, Dikdik, Eland, Topi, Hartebeest, Reedbuck, Waterbuck and
the Steenbok. Nearly always, these animals travel in groupings or
herds. In some cases in large numbers, except for the Dikdik, who
travel in pairs. Enjoy your visit, the pictures, and see if you learn
the difference species you see here-
