The Oribi is a small, graceful antelope, very similar in appearance, but slightly larger than the steenbok. He is rusty brown in colour with a white throat and belly, having a few white spots next to the nostrils and above the eyes. The tail is black on top and white on the bottom, distinguishing him from the steenbok which lacks the black on the tail. They are found mostly on the plains, in areas with short grass and isolated patches of tall grass for shelter. Only the males carry horns, which are straight but tend to bend slightly forward at the tips. The Oribi sometimes form family herds of up to 12 individuals. They prefer to graze when it is cool, so hunting Oribi will probably be best during the early morning and late afternoon. Oribi makes for a magnificent trophy and is a collector’s delight. Oribi form part of the Tiny 10.
