The springbok is probably the only true gazelle found in the sub-region of Southern Africa. Some maintain that the impala is also a gazelle, but most put him in a clan all by himself. These beautiful little antelope inhabit the more western reaches of Southern Africa. Once their numbers were in the millions, however, today they are confined mostly to the game reserves and game ranches. Both the males and females of this unmistakable little gazelle carry horns, the ewe's horns being somewhat shorter and more slender.
