A hunting safari with Bushmen Safaris in South Africa is sure to be a thrilling experience One of the many challenging hunts available on Bushmen Safari's 22,000-acre private deeded land is the grey duiker.
The common duiker, also known as the grey or bush duiker, is a small antelope found everywhere in Africa south of the Sahara. The grey duiker is a medium-sized duiker, still much smaller that most of the other antelope species. You can think of the grey duiker as modified for life in the savanna woodlands. Their legs are longer and better developed, while their back is less rounded than the forest duikers.
Unlike most of the other duikers, only the male carries horns, which stand fairly upright. The name (duiker) is derived from the Dutch (duik), meaning, “to dive”, descriptive of their low, scooting style of running. The Duiker is mostly a browser, and most active during the late afternoon and early evening. A solitary antelope, he will most often be encountered alone.
The grey duiker is just one of the many species available to hunt on the Bushmen Safaris 22,000-acre ranch in South Africa.
