Tsessebe live in savannah and floodplains where they eat mainly grass. Males hold territories from a few tens of thousands of square metres to a few square kilometres. These are marked out with urine, and dung. In the rutting season, some males defend leks, and females preferentially mate the with holder of the central leks; other males, however, continue to hold conventional territories.Females generally live in loose herds of up to twenty females and calves. However, thousands of Tsessebe may migrate together.
