Hunting Nyala

Hunting Nyala In South Africa

About the Species

The Nyala is a spiral-horned and middle-sized antelope, between a bushbuck and a kudu, native to southern Africa. Only the males have horns.

About the Hunt

The trophy quality of a bull is determined by good basses, a steep rise forming a “bell” and tips either pointing straight up or flaring outwards. The classic trophy to many is a flaring bull with solid white tips. A very popular species to hunt and a must for those hunters interested in collecting the spiral family.


The nyala inhabits dense lowland woodlands and thickets. It chooses places with good quality grasslands as well as provision of fresh water.
