The Kudu at Leeupoort

Koedoe

NATURE RESERVE – The bushveld kudu show strong sexual dimorphism in that bulls bear massive, long, spiral horns which reach record lengths of up to 1.7 m. Horns grow to their full length at the age of six to seven years. Bulls also attain much larger body sizes than cows. You have to make use of our holiday accommodation to appreciate this part of the buschveld.

The kudu feeds on a wide variety of tree, shrub, leaves and shoots, favouring fruits like wild watermelons and other fruit for the liquid and the natural sugars that they provide. Aloes are also eaten.
