A Kudu horn is a musical instrument made from the horn of the Kudu antelope. It is mostly seen as in the Western world in its use as a part of the Scouting movement's Wood Badge training program which, when blown, signals the start of a Wood Badge training course or activity. A form of it is sometimes used as a shofar in Jewish ceremonies.
The Kudu are two species of antelope:
- Lesser Kudu, Tragelaphus imberbis
- Greater Kudu, Tragelaphus strepsiceros
The name of the animal was imported into English in the 18th century from isiXhosa iqudu, via Afrikaans koedoe.
