Hi Lost,

The term "bokkie" is a lovely South African word. Used as a term of endearment it can be applied to either sex, and literally translated it means 'little buck', or 'little deer'. The English equivalent is 'sweetheart', and,  as Jan said , it's used as a general term for any unidentified antelope we might see.

Welcome to The Africam Boma! Smiling

Thanks for letting me know.  Shucks, I have trouble telling the difference in the daylight.

Hi Lost.  Most people in here refer to any unidentified antelope as "bokkie".  It's hard at nighttime to tell one from another.
