About The Animal

The Eastern Cape Kudu, scientifically known as Tragelaphus strepsiceros, is a sight to behold. This magnificent antelope is renowned for its striking spiral horns, which can grow up to 120 centimeters long. Males, distinguishable by their larger size and darker coat, often weigh between 190 to 270 kilograms. Females are lighter and lack the iconic horns.

These animals thrive in the dense bushveld and mountainous terrain of South Africa’s Eastern Cape. They are predominantly browsers, feeding on leaves and shoots, and are known for their exceptional agility and jumping ability, easily clearing heights of up to 3 meters.

Kudus are social, yet elusive, often found in small herds led by a dominant male. Their brownish-grey coat with white stripes provides excellent camouflage, making them a challenge to spot in their natural habitat.

Hunting Experience:

Hunting the Eastern Cape Kudu in South Africa is an exhilarating experience. The terrain is diverse, ranging from dense bushveld to rugged mountains, offering hunters both challenges and excitement. The hunt typically spans several days, allowing hunters to immerse themselves in the natural beauty and solitude of the Eastern Cape.

Under the expert guidance of Stephanus Jansen van Rensburg’s team, hunters are provided with invaluable insights into the kudu’s behavior, tracking techniques, and best hunting practices. The team’s expertise ensures a responsible and ethical hunting experience, emphasizing conservation and respect for the animal and its habitat.
