Gemsbuck / Gemsbok

The Gemsbuck is a large antelope of striking appearance and is part of the Oryx genus. Gemsbuck are found in the dry regions of Southern Africa. The current population of Gemsbuck in South Africa is estimated at 373,000. Gemsbuck are able to survive in very harsh conditions as the result of an intricate network of blood vessels situated in the nose. These blood vessels cool down the blood supplied to the brain and protects the Gemsbuck from the deadly temperatures of the Kalahari. Because of this high body temperature Gemsbuck needs to perspire less and therefore preserve water for longer.

South Africa

South Africa is a country with a rich heritage located at the bottom tip of Africa and is bordered to the north by  of  Namibia, Botswana and Zimbabwe; to the east are Mozambique and Swaziland. The total area is 1,219,912 km(471,011 sq mi) making South Africa the 25th largest country in the world.

Numerous mammals are found in the bushveld including lions, leopards, white rhinos, blue wildebeest,  kudus,  impalas,  hyenas, hippopotami and giraffes. A significant extent of the bushveld exists in the north-east including Kruger National Park and the Mala Mala Reserve, as well as in the far north in the Waterberg Biosphere.
