Very interesting article, I always love seeing impala lambs in the summer (admittedely I’ve only seen it twice before but still)! Very interesting to learn the truth behind the impala’s ‘delaying’ their births. Also didn’t know about the word ‘rut’ meaning ‘to roar’. Funny how we never use that word to describe lions roaring.

You know it is summer when the first Impala lambs are born and the Woodlands teturn. Is it a bit earlier this year? Always seem as if the lambs only arrive at the end of November.

Hi Marinda. No this is a fairly normal time of year. The wildebeest start birthing near the end of the month though 🙂 Such a special time. All my best, Amy

So very interesting, Alex. I remember watching a newborn wildebeest attempt to stand in Tanzania. New birth, new generation—life goes on the animal world, just like humankind! The babies are adorable! Thanks for sharing.

Fascinating blog Alex. I’ve always traveled to Africa during your summer months and have been fortunate to observe the youngest of several animal groups. My most amazing trip yielded the witnessing of the impending birth of a wildebeest while on the “hoof” and subsequently finding her and the calf in the bush where she was cleaning the afterbirth away. We sat and watched this little one attempt over and over again to stand, until finally he made it up. I was able to capture it all on video and still find it hard to believe that birth comes and within less than an hour the little one is off with mom and the herd. Cheers for all the impala calves to come. Also liked the information about the word rut. I didn’t associate that with roaring.
