The Kenya Klipspringer, Oreotragus oreotragus, is a shy, often difficult to spot animal. They inhabit rocky terrain with bush cover and during the day one of a pair may be seen standing motionless on watch on a rocky outcropping.
They are preyed on by Leopard, Caracal and Crowned Eagles. They have a varied diet which consists of leaves, flowers, fruit, grass and beard moss and, like the Gerenuk, they stand on their hind legs to reach higher foliage.
They need little water and in the dry season they don't tend to drink at all, getting what they need from their food. We've found that the best place to see them is at Tsavo West around the lava flow.
