Observations were made on a population of dik-dik in Etosha NationaI Park from 1983 to 1986. Most sightings were of an adult pair or a pair and one offspring. More family groups and single females were seen in the cold-dry season than during other seasons. Birth of lambs usually occurred in December and January.
