Greater Kudu encountered on Lolldaiga Hills Ranch

By Tom Butynski, Lolldaiga Hills Research Programme

The greater kudu (Tragelaphus strepsiceros) is one of the world’s largest and most majestic antelopes. As a result of habitat loss and poaching, this species has become increasingly uncommon in East Africa. On Christmas Day, 2014, a herd of five greater kudu (two adult females and three adult males) was encountered on Lolldaiga Hills Ranch.
