The damara is the only dik-dik species with a population occurring in southern Africa (south west Angola and Namibia ); the other population has a typical north-eastern occurrence (namely in Tanzania , Kenya , Uganda , and Somalia ) (East, 1996; Tinley, 1969). A first distribution map was obtained from Estes (1991), then updated using the more accurate country maps in East (1988, 1989), as indicated by Dr. R.East ( 23 June '97 ). The output was then matched to the river network
Categorical-discrete (CD) distribution model
Typically found in dry thickets and grasslands (East, 1988, 1989; Wilson, 1989; Tinley, 1969; Kingdon, 1997).
