The Lechwe originates from Botswana and Zambia and occurs in South Africa as well. The lechwe loves water. It has a poor sense of smell and are not very fast on land.

They prefer staying in marshy areas and have a oily substance on their legs to prevent it from getting wet.

They have white circles around their eyes and they have black rigded horns.

Preferred calibre is the .270 upwards.
