GALLERY: Kudu Fight Up Close and Personal!

While on safari in Botswana with Ivan Carter and Johan Calitz Safaris,  I was fortunate to witness a truly awe-inspiring sight: two kudu bulls going head to head. Here’s what it looks like when two giant antelope fight for dominance.

Safari Classics Productions cameraman Andy McDonald was the first to discover the fight.  We were driving through a heavily wooded area when a clap of thunder startled us.  Another clap led Andy to declare “Kudu fight” then jump off the back of the Land Cruiser and run toward the sound.  I grabbed my camera and followed.
