Antelopes

Uganda is home to an impressive 29 species of antelope, including the eland - the world’s largest antelope, which can measure up to 180cm at the shoulder!
Other large species include the greater kudu, which has long, elegant spiral horns and white side stripes; Jackson’s hartebeest - an unusual, flat-faced creature found only in Uganda, and the shaggy waterbuck - often found near rivers and lakes, as their name suggests.

Fascinating yet rarely seen is the semi-aquatic sitatunga antelope, whose splayed hooves are adapted for life in the papyrus swamps. Much more common are Grant’s gazelle, which can live in herds of hundreds of individuals, and the pretty Uganda kob - Uganda’s national antelope.
