The Kudu, often referred to as the "Grey Ghost" of the African bush, is coveted for its magnificent spiral horns and elegant markings. Their elusive nature and striking appearance make them a top priority for many serious hunters.
While both species possess the iconic spiral horns, the Greater Kudu is generally larger and has more pronounced white stripes on its body. The Lesser Kudu is smaller in size with more frequent and less defined white stripes.
Kudus are typically found in wooded areas, thickets, and bushlands. They prefer regions with good cover, which assists in their elusive nature.
Kudus are incredibly alert and have keen senses. Their tendency to blend seamlessly into their surroundings, combined with their cautious nature, makes them a challenging yet rewarding hunt.
Being browsers, Kudus feed on a mix of leaves, flowers, fruits, and occasionally tubers and roots.
Male Kudus tend to be more solitary, especially older bulls. Females, on the other hand, can often be found in small groups with their young.
Male Kudus have long, spiral horns, while females are hornless. Additionally, males are generally larger and bulkier than females.
By 6 years of age, a Kudu bull will usually have fully developed horns, though some might continue to grow slightly longer spirals as they age further.
The hunting season can vary based on the country and its wildlife regulations. It's essential to check with local authorities or trusted outfitters to ensure legal and ethical hunting.
