Thanks for the photo, what a great thing to see. He's getting quite big already, I wonder if he'll survive to adulthood :hmz:

Tom124 is right, it's more likely not albinism but leucism. Great sighting though! 8)

Hi Meandering Mouse,

Thank you for your comment!
It was indeed an amazing sighting even more exciting because few days before we saw another white impala in the Kruger NP near the kanniedood dam.
I wil try to post some more pictures from the Mapungubwe NP, it's such a lovely place ( even for us, only driving a sedan car)

Best regards,
