Ixodid ticks were collected during February of each year from 1983-1992 from bontebok and grey
rhebok in the Bontebok National Park, Western Cape Province. When available other mammals as
well as ground-nesting birds and leopard tortoises were examined. Eleven tick species were recovered.
Rhipicephalus nitens followed by Rhipicephalus glabroscutatum and an Ixodes sp. (near I.
pilosus) were the most abundant, while Amblyomma marmoreum infested the widest host range.
The larvae of three bot flies were also collected. Gedoelstia sp. and Strobiloestrus sp. larvae were
recovered from bontebok and grey rhebok and larvae of Oestrus ovis only from grey rhebok.
