Oryx | by Sandeep Thoppil

One of its kind in the entire antelope family. These ones are huge and very distinct with their straight and sharp horns. During the peak summer, this click was from my visit to Jwaneng mines. The surroundings of the mine is made to a reserve where one can watch few game, especially Oryx, Giraffe, Springboks, Kudus, Wildebeest etc... People say there are leopards and cheetahs, but as usual quite rare to spot them. This one was standing right in front of our car with the white Kalahari sand background and enjoying the bright sun.
