About the Hunt

Roan, after Eland and Greater Kudu are Africa’s largest antelope. A true collectors specie as most of the Southern African populations are not exceptionally wary. Calibre and shot placement are both very important, as Roan are large, tough and tenacious of life.


Roan antelope are found in woodland and grassland savanna, mainly in the tropical and subtropical grasslands, savannas and shrub-lands, which range in tree density from the forest, with a grassy understory to grasslands dotted with few trees, where they eat mid-length grasses.
