Busch Gardens Tampa Welcomes Nine Newborn Nyala

A few days ago, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay welcomed nine newborn Nyala.
This African antelope has a light brown coat with both white stripes and spots--a great combination for camouflage! While a male Nyala can grow to be almost 300 lbs., an average newborn only weighs 10 lbs. These little ones can be found roaming with the herd near the Serengeti Safari Tour. If spotted in the morning hours, they can often be found huddled together under the bamboo grasses.

With habitat loss and poaching being major concerns for African antelopes like the Nyala, the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund continues to support projects to protect precious natural habitats for predator and prey alike, and to inspire a new generation of conservationists locally and globally.


Currently, the park is supporting the Kasese Wildlife Conservation Awareness Organization in Uganda and teaching locals how to preserve wildlife and foster appreciation for the many species that call Uganda home. You can help out by visiting swbg-conservationfund.org.


The Nyala and other African animals can be seen as part of the Serengeti Safari. The tour transports Guests to the wild and wonderful world of the Serengeti Plain as a tour guide relates secrets and stories of this amazing habitat. Guests enjoying this tour can get the chance to see zebras, giraffe, and rhinos while learning about other exotic animal species and getting the most amazing photo opportunities.
