Spotting the Kudu and Impala

While hiking through the bush as well as on our game drives we would see countless impala. During the time we were there it was the rut for the impala resulting in constant bellowing from the males in hopes they could score some ladies. We would also occasionally see two males squaring up to fight which was very cool to watch. Along with the impala, we would see quite a few kudu, another species of antelope in Africa. I think of them as the African elk, as they are similar in size yet they have spiral horns! They would often be seen browsing and walking very majestically as if they knew they looked super cool.
