RHEBOK

Hunting, shooting for Rhebok

Stalking, Bowhunting, Driven big game, Safari, Hunting from a Blind


Small, inconspicuous and quick, this little antelope lives up to its Latin name as the “little goat”.

Rhebok are endemic to parts of southern Africa, grazing on small plants, bushes and roots like a goat. With small, curved hooves, they can climb well through steep, mountainous terrain.

Did you know that the athletic brand Reebok got its name from this hoofed little Bovidae? Their stamina through difficult terrain inspired the iconic sporting brand. Rhebok may be seen in small groups or alone. Rams will often roam independently and are prized for their slender, erect horns. Trophy horns can reach over 25 centimetres. Rhebok are a stunning species with sleek, lean physical features and big, dark brown eyes.

When threatened, rhebok run, gallop and leap- producing a challenging hunt with their sporadic movements. Spot or follow the white tails of a rhebok like you would a white-tailed deer; the white markings are sometimes the only part of their body not to camouflage into their steep, brushy surroundings.

Rhebok are an excellent hunt by bow or rifle with plenty of time tracking and stalking the swift-footed “little goat”!
