Kafue Flats Lechwe - Species Detail
Kobus leche kafuensis
DESCRIPTION Somewhat larger in body than the red lechwe, with considerably longer horns and a lighter overall color-actually a fulvous or tawny chestnut. The adult male has distinctive dark patches on its shoulders.
DISTRIBUTION The Kafue River Flats in Zambia.
REMARKS This race has by far the most spectacular horns of any common lechwe, and is well worth going after. The hunt is normally a one-day affair from Lusaka, with the approach made either at Lochinvar or Blue Lagoon. There is no cover whatever, so the hunter must be prepared for long shots, with shooting sticks advisable, and a good deal of wading.
