The impala lambing season is in full swing as the green bursts of summer transform the bush into a thriving wilderness. The unfortunate young impala are being devoured quicker than they can run and are providing some unreal predator viewing. Still they keep appearing though and melting hearts around every corner. Small groups can be seen within the large herds running around developing the muscles necessary to stay ahead of the predators in the ruthless world they were born into. The lambs that were born at the beginning of the season are into their first month and are showing some serious signs of early growth. We will keep track of their constant development but for now enjoy the week in pictures!

Good to see a pic of the two Tsalala females. Does anyone know what became of their one surviving daughter from the litter of Feb. 2011?
