About the Hartebeest


The Hartebeest is a large, fawn-colored antelope that stands four feet at the shoulder and can weigh up to 350 pounds. A very unique looking antelope which at first glance seems strangely misshapen and less elegant than other antelopes. Clumsy in appearance, it is hump-shouldered, with a steeply sloping back, slim legs and a long, narrow face. It is far from clumsy, however, and is in fact one of the fastest antelopes in Africa. A Hartebeest is a unique trophy and will be an interesting conversation piece hanging on the wall.
 
There are several varieties of Hartebeest, dependent on geographic area. The shape of the horns and the color of the coat seem to be the most important diagnostic indicators. Others besides the Red Hartebeest include Hunter's, Jackson's, Lichtenstein's and Coke's which are found in East Africa.
 
Hartebeest prefer open grasslands, including savannas. While they may be found in the sparse bush country, Hartebeest will avoid dense bush-veld.
