HARTEBEEST- The hartebeest, also known as kongoni, is an African antelope. Hartebeest are mainly found in medium and tall grasslands, including savannas. They are more tolerant of high grass and woods than other archetypical plains antelopes. Gregarious animals, hartebeest form herds of 20 to 300 individuals. They are very alert and non-aggressive. They are primarily grazers, with their diets consisting mainly of grasses. Inhabiting dry savannas and wooded grasslands, hartebeest often move to more arid places after rainfall. They have been reported from altitudes on Mount Kenya up to 4,000 m (13,000 ft.).
