Impalas are so often ignored but they are a really beautiful and elegant animal

As usual very informative and interesting, Impala are magnificent.

A fascinating read Kevin and an aspect we as humans don’t think a great deal about. Are you saying a female impala’s biology isn’t as sensitive as a male’s to changes in daylight length but rather rely on cues from the male’s behaviour? Does this mean in zoos or example where females are often segregated from males, oestrus may not occur or may be slower to occur?Also could you write about how the plant varieties at Londolozi respond to this phenomenon? Nature is truly amazing!

Great write-up Kevin! The Impalas are beautiful and so graceful and always lovely to see how caring and protective the mothers are with their lambs.

Great article Kevin. The impala really are majestic animals and, unfortunately, get brushed aside in favour of lions, leopards, etc. It always amazes me when I see newborn impala and ellies almost immediately are on their feet and following Mum. We humans are coddled when it comes to childbirth. Nature truly is amazing.

Awesome article! But I blame finding this blog for my inability to finish my paper…
