The Nyala (Afrikaans name, Niala) is very handsome animal, similar to the Kudu but smaller in size and without the huge twisted horns of the Kudu, they have more lyre shaped horns. Nyala males are really striking with their mantles of rich dark fur and markings.

Single young are born at any time of the year after a gestation period of just over seven months. The calf remains hidden for two weeks before joining the family group.

This young male was showing his colours about to get to the adult coat.
