Impala in KenyaHere’s a typical safari scene: a “harem” herd of female and young impala, with one dominant male, who has feeding and mating privileges.

When young male impala begin to grow horns, they are kicked out of the harem to live in their own “bachelor” herd. When they’re older, one may challenge a dominant male for his harem.

(From a 2002 trip to Kenya.)
