    I'm sure this is a youngster, but really don't know what, the mane has me fooled.

    Great find, you are right, this is juvenile #eland (elands have that dorsal mane crest), at least 2 adults just about visible in backg. 😃

    So it's not a wildebeest calf?

    Tricky one, but I believe a gnu calf with horns that big would show a bigger darker mane, and the context makes eland much more likely.

    Definitely an eland - the ears, colour and mane are all key pointers 😃
