About The Animal

The Steenbok, or Raphicerus campestris, is a small, elegant antelope found widely across the bushveld and savannas of South Africa. Standing about 45-60 cm at the shoulder and weighing between 7 and 16 kg, these petite antelopes are known for their reddish-brown coat and slender, delicate appearance. The males sport short, straight horns, while females are hornless, adding to their graceful demeanor.

Steenboks are solitary or found in pairs, known for their elusive and skittish nature. They prefer areas with sufficient cover and are adept at hiding in small shrubbery. Their diet primarily consists of leaves, fruits, and seeds, although they occasionally graze on grasses. An interesting behavior of the Steenbok is their practice of digging up roots and tubers, which is relatively unusual for antelopes.

Hunting Experience:

Hunting Steenbok in South Africa is a test of patience and stealth. These small antelopes are known for their keen senses and wariness, making them a challenging target. The hunt typically involves a combination of stalking and careful observation, requiring hunters to blend seamlessly into the environment.

The expertise of Stephanus Jansen van Rensburg’s team is crucial in this type of hunt. Their deep understanding of the Steenbok’s behavior and habitat helps in locating and approaching these elusive animals. The terrain for Steenbok hunting varies but often involves flat to slightly undulating bushveld, providing an accessible yet challenging hunting ground. The duration of the hunt can vary, but it often spans a few days to allow for a respectful and patient approach.
