It was accidentally introduced (it migrated down to South Africa)

Black Rhinoceros

This species is endangered because they are hunted for their horns. The part of HIPPCO this is is overharvesting.


Lions are easily adapted to this area because they can easily blend in and hunt down prey


Cheetahs also blend in and they are also very fast (the fastest animal on the planet), this allows them to easily catch prey


The Oryx are prey for Lions, Cheetahs Leopards, etc. They can blend in though and attack with their horns.
