Welcome to the message board.

Looks like Ngwenya but not in their current catalogue, love the warthogs: https://ngwenyaglass.co.sz/animals

Yours might be a Roan Antelope.

Google came to the rescue with the search "animals of Swaziland", the curved horns, ruff on the neck were the clues and that crouched defensive stance was great confirmation.

That's really clever - I tried google but didn't know where to start. Looking at at 'animals of Swaziland' would never have crossed my mind. Glad you have solved the mystery :)
