Browsers’ fruit, seed pods, melons and young grass shoots. Also raid crops. Fairly independent of water.

These gregarious hunting species are found in herds of up to 12. Bulls are either solitary or in groups – 14 mature bulls have been observed in one group in the Tuli Block, Botswana. Kudu are found in well-bushed regions and in hills. Shy, timid animals, they are most adept at concealment, remaining motionless for long periods when suspicious. They approach water carefully and are largely mobile at night. Their call is a loud bark and their sight, sense of smell and hearing are all excellent.
