The Nyala is one of the most beautiful antelope that can be hunted on safari and it is one of many species available to hunt on Bushmen Safaris wildlife conservancy in South Africa.
This elegant, slender member of the spiral horned tribe is native to Zululand and the name translates means the “shifty one” in the Zulu language. The male common Nyala is a medium-sized antelope of striking appearance. It is slender, with a narrow but deep body, and a shaggy, slate-brown coat. Younger males have up to 14 vertical white stripes on each side, but in older animals these are reduced to three or four, or may even be absent. There are white spots on hindquarters and cheeks, a white band on the lower neck, and a white facial chevron. A partially erectile dorsal crest of long hairs extends from the back of the head to the root of the tail-dark brown on the neck and white along the back. A very long, dark mane grows from throat to belly, and the hindquarters are fringed with long dark hairs. The tail is dark brown on top and white underneath. Lower legs are orange, the ears are large and horns are grown by males only.
