This unspoiled African wilderness is known for its variety of wildlife.
Greater Kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros)
The greater kudu is one of the most beautiful species of antelope in the world. Native to the bushlands and woodlands of central and southern Africa, kudus are browsers that eat the leaves and shoots from a variety of plants. Males are known for their spectacular, curved horns which can grow as long as 6 feet. These horns do not prevent kudus from getting around in their densely wooded habitat; they simply tilt their chins up, laying their horns flat against their backs, and can then move easily through the dense vegetation.
Impala (Aepyceros melampus)
The impala is one of the most agile of all the antelope species. They range from southern Africa to the northern limits of east Africa. They weigh 100 to 135lbs and stand 28 to 36 inches tall. The males’ graceful lyre-shaped horns are 18 to 37 inches long; the females have no horns. The impala is typically found at grassland and woodland edges, usually very close to water.
Ostrich (Struthio camelus)
These easily recognizable creatures are the world’s largest birds. Because their wing muscles are not strong enough to support their weight, ostriches cannot fly. Adult males, which can weigh as much as 350 lbs. and can grow to eight feet tall, are distinguished by their black feathers. Females and immature male ostriches have dull gray feathers.
