The classic deer/antelope pose. Quite good but not very sharp again, even at such a high shutter speed. Nothing is fully sharp, so that does suggest camera movement. You wern't resting your camera on the side of a vehicle that still had the engine running were you. In boats or vehicles with engines running you get continuous vibration which will cause apparent shake at almost any shutter speed.

You had some great photographic opportunities on safari, Uma, and I'm sure your pictures will help bring back memories for you.
What a shame that you didn't or couldn't get out of the vehicle.
The softness of the image has already been mentioned.
I love the white circle on the hind quarters of this animal! and the beautiful curve of its horns.
You have kept the shot simple and included a good amount it the natural environment.
As to composition, you have your waterbuck (you missed out the "b" from your title) very central in your frame.
There are no fixed rules in photography. However, there are are number of established compositional guidelines which can be applied in almost any situation to improve the impact of your photos.
Where you position your animal relative to the frame helps to move the viewer’s eye around your composition, and if you place the animal at the dead-centre of your picture, it can feel static and dull, whereas an off-centre position is more pleasing and dynamic.
When you place your subject to one side of your frame, make sure the animal is facing towards the area of negative space. So, in this instance, although the waterbuck is looking straight towards you (which is what you want, by the way), its body is facing to the left. So the image would benefit from having less space on the right of your frame.
Pamela.
