Since I first caught a glimpse of my first wild Impala in South Africa I can never seem to see enough of these gorgeously-delicate, coppery coated animals. No matter their activity Impala are always graceful and poised. The only gap in their otherwise flawless character comes from the very unattractive pig-like grunting uttered by the males in proclaiming their hotly contested territories. The female carries no horns and relies on her fleetness of foot to avoid danger.
