The Hartebeest looks at first glance a bit misshapen and less elegant than other antelopes. But in fact it is one of the fastest antelopes and most enduring runners.

Actually the Hartebeest has two names:

- Hartebeest = African farmers gave this name because they thought it resembled a deer which is called "Hert" in african/dutch (and "beest" means beast).
- Kongoni = The Swahili word for "Tough ox"
