The beautiful Black Faced Impala is generally limited to Northern Namibia. While easy to observe in Etosha National Park, it is considered threatened because of its relatively small numbers and limited distribution. There is also thought to be the risk of interbreeding with the common impala which has been imported into game farms throughout Namibia.
