The park is also famous for its large antelope herds. Quite frequently one can see hundreds of graceful springbok and blue wildebeest (gnu), red heartebeast and eland moving about grazing through the veld. Gemsbok (oryx), the large striking desert antelope is the signature animal of the park.But it is the predators that are the park’s biggest attraction. And there are excellent chances of seeing leopard, cheetah, brown and spotted hyena and the ultimate black-maned lion, all well represented. Other carnivores include the caracal, black-backed jackal, bat-eared fox and Cape fox. The endangered wild dog is also occasionally sighted.
