A zoo is not an acceptable answer.

If West Kili is mentioned, are there non-horseback riding options that would be good for seeing Lesser Kudu? I know they are shy species by nature that are usually seen dusk and dawn.

There are apparently two types of Lesser Kudu, I have seen one in Ruaha Tanzania, but which one I have no idea.

There was one in the Mara a couple of weeks ago!

I saw lots of lesser kudus in Tsavo East, but they were always hiding in the bushes. I think I saw only one in Samburu, plus a couple of greater. And then Iíve seen one near Magadi town.

So maybe there is a Lesser and a Least Kudu. That's right, Southern Tanzania, such as Ruaha, would also have them.

Nyamera, you see everything in Samburu, including wild dogs!

Between our stays in Tsavo East and Taita Ranch (borders Tsavo East to the south), we had multiple sightings of lesser kudu this past Feb. I've also seen them (1 sighting each) on previous trips to Tsavo West and Meru. No kudu sightings on Ndarakwai in West Kili. Based on my very unscientific few days spent in each area, I'd say you're most likely to see them in the Tsavo East/Taita Ranch areas. If you go to Tsavo East, you can also look for hirola.
