go for all of them!!!! kudu are great, gemsbok are great, impala are great, etc.

i do not know your budget, but kudu,gemsbok,zebra, impala, and try for a red hartebeest if you can. I like eland also, but would rather shoot one here in texas so i can keep the meat, even if it is more expensive.

GOOD LUCK!!
