Livingston's Eland

As if by magic, every year at the beginning of October the big blue Livingston’s Eland Bulls join the cow-herds on the flood plain and surrounding palm savanna.

The heaviest of the antelope family, these graceful animals often weigh in at over 2000lbs. A mature bull carry’s a mop on his forehead and the dark blue body color is actually the skin color. Blue bulls have very little hair over their shoulders.

Being one of the very few wild antelope to have body fat, they also make exceptional table fare. When bulls walk in a relaxed manner their hooves often click.

It’s often this sound that gives there whereabouts away. A small, well-managed quota allows us to take exceptional bulls every season.
