In Tshivenda ’ngululu’ is a generic noun for an antelope. We chose the greater kudu (mountain kudu or berg kudu) in contrast with one of the smallest antelopes ‘mbila’ or ‘klipspringer’ that is one of the ‘Tiny Ten’ antelopes of Southern Africa. We chose the greater kudu in awe and reverence of its prowess. This type of an antelope is tenacious and majestic. It has universal appeal and it is acclaimed in Africa as a clan’s or a place’s name. The male horns can be used as a trumpet. The kudu is a delight for both humans and predators. Its biltong is delicious and its hide is a thing of beauty!

The investment policy of Ngululu is guided by the following philosophy:

  • Must be able to take a controlling share in the business.
