The Game Reserve Shiraz - the Eland

The Game Reserve Shiraz - the Eland
Derived from the Dutch meaning elk, the eland (Taurotragus oryx) is the largest antelope in Africa with an average weight of around 700 kg. Despite this bulk it can jump with ease up to two metres high.

These browsers are perfectly adapted to the Karoo, requiring a substantial grazing area, a commodity very rare in wine production areas. Through our conservation efforts we’re able to provide this graceful animal with a perfectly suited natural habitat.
