|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.
