One of the most handsome of all antelope, the Sable Antelope is one of the most highly-prized animals available to hunt in South Africa and it’s just one of many species available at the Bushmen Safaris wildlife conservancy in South Africa.
With their regal curved horns and stunning short jet-black coat, they are large magnificent antelopes with shoulders higher than hindquarters. Sables have a stiff mane running down the top of the neck onto the shoulders and it’s highlighted in contrast with striking bright white markings on the head and face.
Sable antelope can weigh from 330 to 600 pounds. This large species ranges from 46 to 56 inches tall at the shoulder and measures 75 to 100 inches long, not counting a tail of 15 to 30 inches. The males are slightly larger than females. Females are chestnut to dark brown, darkening as they mature, while males are very distinctively black. Both sexes have white underbellies, white cheeks and white chins. Their ringed horns, which arch backward, can reach nearly 3 feet in females. In males, they can reach almost 4 feet and are significantly more curved than those of females. The sable’s geographic range extends through the southern savanna from central Tanzania to South Africa.
