[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The common impala is one of the most abundant antelopes in Africa, with about one-quarter of the population occurring in protected areas.he breeding season of impalas, also called rutting, begins toward the end of the wet season in May. The entire affair typically lasts approximately three weeks. While young are usually born after six to seven months,the mother has the ability to delay giving birth for an additional month if conditions are harsh. When giving birth, a female impala will isolate herself from the herd despite numerous attempts by the male to keep her in his territory.
