The red hartebeest (Alcelaphus buselaphus caama), also called the Cape hartebeest or Caama, is a subspecies of the hartebeest found in Southern Africa. More than 130,000 individuals live in the wild. The red hartebeest is closely related to the tsessebe and the topi.

Red hartebeests are grass feeders, which is evidenced by their long snouts, which give the advantage of an improved cropping ability. Lions typically prey on adult males, while both spotted hyenas and leopards tend to prey on young calves.
