The sable antelope is a large antelope that inhabits wooded savanna in East and Southern Africa, from the south of Kenya to South Africa, with a separated population in Angola.

Sable antelopes are herbivores. They are specialized browsing animals that feed upon foliage, mid-length grasses, leaves, and herbs, particularly those that grow on termite mounds. Tree leaves make up 90% of their diet. They are diurnal animals, meaning they are most active in the daylight but less active during the hottest part of the day. Like other bovids, they also have a ruminant digestive system. Because water is essential to the sable antelope's survival, it travels every two to four days to drink at water sources. The sable antelope presumably decreases its risk of being eaten by predators by staying away from feeding areas with high numbers of other grazers but at the cost of prolonged and strenuous journeys to water. The use of specific water sources in particular regions is related to the presence of calcium and magnesium salts in the water, allowing the antelope to consume large amounts of minerals while meeting their water needs.
