Hi george4e and welcome to the forum :gflower: :gflower:

That looks like a young Red Hartebeest.

Have a look here for more info on Tankwa Karoo Mammals

2009 saw the commencement of the largest single relocation of antelope into Tankwa Karoo National Park. Since its reintroduction programme began in June 2004 with ten Cape Mountain Zebra, 114 Gemsbok, 89 Red Hartebeest and 170 Springbok have since found a new home in Tankwa. These animals were followed by a further 245 Springbok and 60 Eland between 2010 and 2012.
