|Namibia Home <- Etosha <- Red Hartebeest|
Alcephalus buselaphus caamaThe Red Hartebeest is a subspecies of the Kongoni family, although to my mind at least it looks quite different, more like a Topi. There is another sub-species confined to Ethiopia, which looks like this one, but has black on its flanks.
Kingdon calls this sub-species the Khama.
Etosha is the best place in Namibia to see Red Hartebeest.
|These males were just testing their strength, but males have been known to kill each other in these fights.|
