I am trying to download a hillshade map of africa. I found the perfect one, namely this: South Africa 5m resolution hillshade http://www.arcgis.com/home/item.html?id=219dc4347a594455bdf239c8eb4b581c

I open the downloaded link with the ArcMap and I see the map but it is not a raster and I can't figure out how to download it.

That ArcGIS.com resource is:

A hillshade of the 5m resolution Stellenbosch University Digital Elevation Model (SUDEM) accessible online through free Web Mapping Service made available by the University of Stellenbosch.

It is offered as an OGC Web Map Service (WMS) and does not provide a data download service.
