Impala | Aepyceros melampus
The petite Impala or Black-rumped Antelope inhabits the open savannas in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Zambia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe, as far as Botswana and in northeastern South Africa. The name Impala comes from the Zulu language. An Impala reaches the size of a fallow deer with about 90 centimeters, but looks slimmer and more filigree. A typical distinguishing feature of these animals are the black spots on the feet and an elongated, white spot above the eyes.
