Day 18: Why I love South Africa: The animals: Springbokke


A springbok is s a medium-sized brown and white antelope. It is very fast and can reach speeds of up to 100km/h (62 mph) it can jump very high 4m (13 feet) through the air. Spring – translated is jump and bok translated is goat.

The springbok is South Africa’s national animal and also the name of the South African Rugby Team.

I love seeing them jump and leap through the air.

The Springbok and Impala look very similar and people sometimes get confused with them.
