Impala (Aepyceros melampus) The name impala comes from the Zulu language meaning “gazelle”.It is a tawny, sleek and elegant creature living in herds varying in size but the beauty is often overlooked due to its abundance.
Social structure: Bachelor herds are made up of either young male impala or adults that have been ousted from their territories. Impala males will continually test their strength against one other. Info
