The study area of 2 786 ha contained over 200 springbok. The data were gathered during 78 separate day visits over four years. The most important social groups were (l) nursery herds of females and young; (2) harem herds similar to (l) but containing one adult male; (3) bachelor herds of males; and (4) solitary males. About twice as many adult females were to be found in harem herds as in nursery herds.
