One of our Experienced and Licensed Professional Hunters will be your guide during your Blue Wildebeest Hunt. We typically hunt Blue Wildebeest Safari Style, Spot and Stalk, or by Still Hunting if you are a Bow Hunter.

The Blue wildebeest (Connochaetes taurinus), also known as the common wildebeest or brindled gnu, is a large antelope native to eastern and southern Africa.

What do Blue Wildebeest look like:

Blue wildebeests have a dark silver-grey body, marked with dark vertical bands at the front. They have long black mane and as well as a beard that can be black or white. Both sexes have a pair of curved, ridged horns that curved upward.

Habitat of Blue Wildebeest:

Blue wildebeests prefer the dense bushlands, open grasslands, and floodplains of the southern savanna. They often migrate in search of food and water.

Behavior of Blue Wildebeest:

Blue wildebeest are very sociable animals, and tend to form large herds that provide protection against predators. They migrate for a very long and harsh period in search of grass and water.

Blue Wildebeest Reproduction:

Breeding typically occurs during the rainy season, and cows will give birth to a single calf after a gestation period of about 9 months. Baby wildebeests are one of the most precocial animals, and are able to stand and run only a couple minutes after birth!

Blue wildebeest migration:

These animals are known for their great migration, which many people travel to see. They migrate on a loop path through Tanzania and Kenya through dangerous territory. This occurs between July and October.
