Nyala are a member of the spiral-horned antelopes tribe, Tragelaphini. This tribe consists of nine species of woodland browsers and mixed feeders, built for jumping or careful movement rather than swift running; they are striped and spotted for concealment, and more or less nocturnal. The Nyala comes out to graze floodplain grassland at night during summer rains; in the dry season it browses woodland leaves, herbs, pods, and fruit. The Nyala are native to Southern Malawi south to Natal. The Nyala in this image gallery are at Namibian game reserves that provide sufficient water and supplemental feed to support the Nyala in this different environment.
