Topis are a highly social and fast antelope species of the genus ''Damaliscus''. The vernacular name "topi" applies not only to the species but also to two subspecies ''D. k. jimela'' and ''D. k. topi'', while the name korrigum or tiang applies to the subspecies ''D. k. korrigum''. Along with the Bangweulu Tsessebe this species was formerly included in the common tsessebe. The species is to be found in the savannas, semi-deserts, and floodplains of sub-Saharan Africa.
