The helminth burdens of 17 springbok from 2 localities in the Transvaal and of 4 springbok from the western Cape Province were determined. Eight of the animals from the Transvaal and the 4 from the Cape Province were also examined for arthropod parasites. In all, 26 helminth species, 5 species of ixodid ticks and 4 species of lice were recovered from the springbok. Of the helminths Dictyocaulus magnus, Trichostrongylus axei, T. falculatus and Agriostomum equidentatum were recovered from animals in each of the surveys. The lice Damalinia antidorcus, Linognathus antidorcitis and L. bedfordi were present on animals in the Transvaal and the western Cape Province.
