Did you know... impalas are seasonal breeders and in South Luangwa their young are usually born in early November to coincide with the first rains? If the rainfall is late arriving then females will often delay giving birth until conditions are less harsh. The fawn is often hidden in an isolated spot for a few days, or even longer, before returning to the herd, where it will join a nursery group and only go to its mother to nurse or when predators are near.
