Range Description

This endemic South African species was restricted to the southern coastal areas from about Caledon to Plettenberg Bay. The last individual Bluebuck was shot around 1800, the first African antelope to be hunted to extinction by European settlers (Klein 1974). Detailed reviews of the species are provided by Mohr (1967), Klein (1974), and Smithers (1983).
