About The Animal

The Oryx or Gemsbuck (Oryx gazella) is a large and robust antelope, notable for its striking appearance. It has a tan or sandy coat, with contrasting black and white markings on the face, legs, and flanks. Both males and females possess long, straight horns, which can reach up to 120 cm in length, making them one of the antelope’s most distinctive features.

Adapted to arid environments, Gemsbuck are found in South Africa’s semi-desert and savannah regions. They are predominantly grazers but can survive in harsh conditions with limited water, feeding on tough grasses and leaves. These antelopes are known for their endurance and can defend themselves effectively against predators with their formidable horns.

Hunting Oryx in South Africa offers a unique challenge due to the animal’s resilience and the arid, open terrain they inhabit. This environment requires hunters to adapt their strategies for long-range shooting and stalking in open spaces.

The expertise of Stephanus Jansen van Rensburg’s team is invaluable in such hunts. Their knowledge of the Gemsbuck’s behavior, combined with their understanding of the terrain, enhances the hunting experience. They ensure that all hunts are conducted ethically and sustainably, respecting the animal and the environment.
