About the Tsessebe
Looking at a Tsessebe (sometimes called Topi), you’d be astonished to discover it is generally considered the fastest antelope in the African bushveld. It looks somewhat clumsy, with high, humped shoulders sloping down to unexceptional hindquarters. When danger threatens, it speeds away with the herd but has a peculiar habit of then stopping to see how far away its pursuer is. Territorial males are fond of standing on termite mounds or higher ground and surveying their territory.
