Sometimes kudus surprise you. Like last night, when a kudu caught sight of us and fled for the cover of the nearest bushes.
“Oh well, that’s what kudus do…”
It’s usually what they do. They may be pretty, but they aren’t fast. Their agility and giant ears are better suited for thickets, which is why they run to one before you can even shout, “kudu!”
Except then he looks at us and steps out of his cover into the most glorious sunset light and shows us why a kudu sits unrivaled as Africa’s most majestic. Kudutastic.
