Five vaal ribbok, culled in the Bontebok National Park during December 1979, were examined for helminth and arthropod parasites. Two nematode species, a louse and 2 tick species were recovered and there was also evidence of previous infestation by the larvae of 2 oestrid flies. The parasite burdens of the vaal ribbok are compared with those of sympatric bontebok and springbok culled at the same time.
