The Springbok is the only true gazelle found in Southern Africa. Once their numbers were in the millions however today they are confined mostly to the game reserves and game ranches.
In South Africa springbok live in the grasslands of the Free State and the shrublands of the Karoo. In Namibia, springbuck hunts take place in the grasslands of the south, the Kalahari desert to the east and the dry riverbeds of the northern bushveld of the Windhoek region. In Botswana they live in the Kalahari Desert. An unusual characteristic of the springbuck is it's ability to lift a "flap" that causes long white hairs under the tail to stand up in a conspicuous fan shape. This ritual is known as pronking from the Afrikaans, meaning to boast or show off.
