Other Grazers & Browsers
Besides the 'megaherbivores', Kruger is home to over 20 other grazers and browsers including two more of my favourites - plains zebra and waterbuck. By far the most common herbivore is the impala - the Park's population of around 90,000 individuals swells to 120,000 during the breeding season but falls back again as young, weak and sick animals are picked-off by the predators. Although also numerous, the zebra and blue wildebeest are seen in relatively small groups - go to the Serengeti or the Masai Mara for spectacularly huge herds.

Klipspringer

These tiny antelopes are monogamous and therefore usually seen in pairs. They are perfectly camouflaged for their rocky environment, and difficult to spot unless they move.

Common warthog

These warthog babies were so tiny that they were probably on their first outing from the den.
