Female impalas and young form herds of up to two hundred individuals. When food is plentiful, adult males will establish territories. Females pass through the territories that have the best food resources. Territorial males round up any female herds that enter their grounds, and will chase away bachelor males that follow. In this image, a herd of female impalas are looking for a shade, to get away from the hot mid day sun in Kruger National Park.
