Rock Jumper



An elegant Klipspringer surveys the land from the volcanic rock of Shetani Lava Flows.

This skilled ‘rock jumper’, as Klipspringer translates to from Afrikaans, has an incredible sense of balance and poise, prancing around on uneven kopjes and rock surfaces with absolute grace. Said to have the balance of a ballerina, they can stand with all hooves on a very small surface area, important when navigating all types of crevices of rocky terrain.

This one had a beautiful stillness about her as she stood stationary for some time during the last light.
