Rare sighting of Swayne’s Hartebeest

Dec 2, 2019

Only two pockets of Swayne’s Hartebeest still live wild in their original territory. Established to protect this endemic and endangered species, this tiny 54km2 protected area, named Senkelle Swayne’s Hartebeest Sanctuary lies in the Oromia region of  Ethiopia and along with the 600+ Swayne’s Hartebeest, the Sanctuary also has reedbuck, greater kudus, orbis, spotted hyenas, serval and civet cats and warthogs, as well as 91 species of bird.
How lucky, just by chance we flew right over.
