Kenya Impala

You are Here: › Kenya Impala

Kenya Impala, Aepyceros melampus, are elegant, smooth-coated animals which travel in small herds. Only the males have horns and these are impressively large and lyre-shaped.

One of the distinguishing features of Kenya Impala is the dark spot on the body at the junction with the top of the back leg. Impala are grass eaters which prefer lightly wooded country with a ready supply of water close by.

Females form into harems with their young, each harem has a single male who will fight other males to defend his group and territory.

This is an exhausting process for the male who will usually go back to a bachelor herd for a period of time after the breeding season (sometimes this may be for a few years)
