Red lechwe are not originally from South Africa and were introduced from neighbouring countries.  Their preferred habitat is shallow floodplains and they are well adapted to the water, being excellent swimmers.  Slow on land, they will flee to water to avoid predators.  They can be found feeding on river grasses knee deep in water early mornings and late afternoons, spending the day on land resting out of the worst of the heat. It is almost guaranteed that you will get your feet wet hunting and retrieving your trophy.  Only the males have horns.
