The beautiful, elegant and slender nyala is a spiral-horned antelope native to Zululand. The nyala's name translates in the Zulu language to “shifty one”, descriptive of his elusive nature.
Nyala hunts can be very difficult as they are elusive and skittish. A trophy nyala will have bell shaped horns with ivory tips flaring outwards. On a typical 10-day plains game safari, a 25" nyala bull would be a good bar to set for yourself. Anything over 28" should be considered an exceptional trophy nyala.
