    African hunters love their kudu! With his white stripes, grey hide and wonderfully spiralling horns he is the most recognizable of all African antelopes. In today’s Africa the greater kudu is usually at the top of the wish list for hunters on their first safari….and, for old veterans, including me, the kudu is an animal we always return to, still searching for that monster bull. The greater kudu is the stuff of legends, the climax of Ernest Hemingway’s Green Hills of Africa…. and the final tragedy of Robert Ruark’s Horn of the Hunter. The lesser kudu, well, he’s just as elusive and to my eyes even more beautiful. And yet, in the entire rich body of the literature we call Africana, I am not aware of a single volume devoted entirely to Africa’s Gray Ghost. Now we have one well written and equally well researched by Peter Flack, and including chapters by some of Africa’s greatest hunters…. all of whom, as we all do, love their kudu.

    Think again if you reckon you know all about kudu. I foolishly thought I did and I have been humbled. This book opened my eyes to my inadequacies. Beautifully written and masterfully assembled, this new book is a treasure trove of valuable information, useful hunting tips, tried and tested techniques and interesting anecdotes. So much so that I will never again look at a kudu with the same eyes. Peter Flack’s latest effort is destined to become a classic. This is the definitive work on these magnificent antelopes.
