Undoubtedly one of the most common sightings on safari the ubiquitous Impala never ceases to amaze us with their beauty and gracefulness. It's easy to drive past them and say 'just another impala' but stopping and taking time to observe them can bring rewarding sightings, while out the other day we stopped to watch these impalas, then something spooked them in the bushes behind making them start to scarper away, not just by running but by their famous jumps. Jumping 3 meters high and covering distances of up to 10 meters in a single jump, it was a magnificent display.

Not long to go until the rutting season and it will be Impala mayhem all over the Selous!!
