The Watusi breed appear elegant, well-bred, and graceful. They have a straight topline and a sloping rump, and sometimes a neck hump. Watusi may be solid or spotted in colour, their horns are long and symmetrical, with a base large and proportional to horn length.

The Watusi is medium in size, with cows weighing 900 - 1200 pounds and bulls weighing 1000 - 1600 pounds. Newborn calves weigh 30 - 50 pounds. This small birth-weight makes Watusi bulls useful for breeding to first-calf-heifers of other breeds.
