Impala and baby.
We arrived seconds after the baby was born. The mother was still lying on the ground, and she stood up and started licking the lamb. At first I didn't realise it had just been born, as Impala usually all drop their young at the same time, and that time is November in that part of the park. Apparently the strange rainy season has upset the cycle and there were a few pregnant Impala around.
Notice the placenta still attached to the mother.
Aepyceros melampus
