The Wildebeest was invented for Wildebeest Chess by R. Wayne Schmittberger, which was published in his 1992 book New Rules for Classic Games.
The Wildebeest is a compound piece that moves as a Knight or a Camel. So, it is both a 1-2 leaper and a 1-3 leaper. The diagram below shows the spaces it can leap directly to.
The Musketeer Chess line of Chess variant pieces includes kits with Wildebeest pieces in them.
