It is truly amazing how nature has its own balance. In birth there is life, yet in birth there is death – But there is still success for the species!

Awesome, graceful little lambs. They are nothing less than baby elephants, with their large eyes and long eyelashes! And those long, thin legs like dancers. I’m surprised somewhat that they manage to survive, not to leopards or wild dogs but to hyenas that exceed far any other predators in numbers and are quite clever and adapted as well. I wouldn’t like to see them falling prey, but living their (short or long whatever) life in Londolozi

Nature is amazing, beautiful, cruel, perfect, surprising all at once. It is sad to see such a beautiful little animal in the jaws of e.g. a leopard, also a wonderful animal. And yet that’s what nature is like.
But it’s great that impalas still thrive and there are so many of them and that because of this, all the predators also thrive and all of them give us so much pleasure.

It’s such an amazing time ! I love the bush during lambing season, there’s nothing quite like it.

I agree with you Patrick that lambing season is really special! I love seeing all the little ones, especially when they’ve gathered together in their crèche. Even better is to witness a birth, and then watch with awe the evolution of its finally standing! With all this new life, there will be deaths by predators, but so it goes in the life cycle….

So fantastic to see these baby impala everywhere. They can be so full of energy at times. They have the cuttest face ever.

Thanks for the update on the impala. The cycle of life is played out everywhere with future existence always on the line.
