Head over to the African Savannah to see our group of nyala, along with our Chapman’s zebra and wildebeest.
Nyala antelope are a shy species which inhabit areas of dense thicket and forest in southern parts of Africa.
As a herbivore, nyala will eat shrubs, leaves and grass, spending much of their time grazing.
In the past, nyala disappeared from much of their range due to habitat loss caused by farming, over-grazing by cattle, hunting by humans, and rinderpest infection. However, effective habitat protections, species management, and re-introductions of nyala to areas where they had been wiped out have helped the species to bounce back.
