Impala herd (Aepyceros melampus). These antelope live in herds of between 15 and 25 females and their offspring, with a dominant adult male. Young males also form independent groups. In the dry season, males and females group together in larger herds of several hundred individuals. Impala inhabit the wooded savanna of Africa south of the equator. They are extremely agile and can leap distances of up to 9 metres to escape predators. Impala feed on vegetation including leaves, twigs, fruits and grasses. Photographed in the Mkuzi Game Reserve, South Africa.
