These small antelopes are common throughout Namibia, including the arid desert areas of the Namib Desert, the savannas of Etosha National Park, and the grasslands of the country's interior. They have a cinnamon-colored coat with a white face, underbelly, and rump. A dark brown stripe runs along their sides, and they have a prominent flap of skin on their back, which they can raise when they perform their characteristic high jumping behaviour. This behavior, known as pronking or stotting, is a way to deter predators and signal to the group. It involves springing into the air with all four legs extended and then landing on all fours.
Buffalo can be found in various parts of Namibia, including the Caprivi Region and Bwabwata National Park. African buffalo are known for their social behaviour and often live in large herds, sometimes numbering in the hundreds, typically led by dominant bulls. Buffalo herds are known to graze during the day and seek shelter from predators at night. They are herbivorous animals, primarily grazing on grasses, but they may also feed on other vegetation, depending on the availability of food in their habitat.
