To see where they are, go below the fold (click “read more”).

Here are the klipspringers! If there are more than two, let us know.

    OK, good. Got one, entertained the possibility of the silhouette.

    Yes, you had to search on the top of cliffs, klipspringer is Dutch for “cliff jumper”

      In this case “Klip” is stone though, from the Afrikaans. I think in Dutch it can be translated as cliff.

        Well yes, you are very right: stone,rock etc.. In Dutch it is more like a cliff, including underwater ones.
        In Afrikaans it is any stone, particularly, as it appears, the ones thrown, often to the detriment of the receiving eye (but that is another story, albeit close to me)

    I still don’t see the one on the right. Maybe I need new glasses — better yet, new eyes.

      Yes, if you enlarge the image, you can see the head with it’s big eye and the two (almost) parallel horns sticking up.

        Of course, I didn’t mean with “yes” that you need new eyes. I just meant that you can see the animal.

    The little so and so’s are hiding. I never would have spotted them without the red circles.

    Only found the one on the left. )n the right, even after pointing out, I see but a dubious shoulder.
    On the routes through the Outeniqua and Swartberg mountains, they are a not really a common sighting. When I spot one my day is made. Over >10 years driving through these mountains I spotted them only 4 times,
    They do not appear to be very shy at all, I presume they probably are rather scarce.

    I did see that thing on the right, but it’s pretty hard to tell for sure that it is an animal.

      Yes, I winged that one – but then I can now crow a little.

      It is a klipspringer as vouched for by the woman who sent me the picture. It’s in front of a log or something, which makes it look weird.

    This one was a toughie. I thought I found on but it was a log with a weird “face”
