Common Reedbucks are known for their territorial behavior, males especially, defending their territories against any intruders. They are more active during the day than night, and may rest in the shade during the hottest parts of the day. During the wet season, common reedbucks can be found in pairs, small groups, or by themselves. During the winter months it is extremely rare to find a solitary reedbuck, because the food and water is scarce.
