Hi KC,

We were there last week in the south and up to one hour drive below Satara. We only found a handful of newborn impala in the most northern part of our trip. None yet in the area of Pretoriuskop, Berg-en-Dal, Crocodile Bridge and Lower Sabie. But it was just a matter of days, max weeks, before they would start calving.

Just for Information - I was there today and did not see one new baby impala.

Last week saw a 2 day old Rhino - it was the cutes thing ever - smaller than a Warthog. (regret it was nit in KP )

Here's the only new born impala my parent saw on their recent trip (seen near Satara on the 9th November 2012) :dance:

I was in KP on Saturday and Sunday and saw only one young Impala - probably about a week old - I say a week old because it was running around a clearing - doing laps and was far to sure footed to be just days old.

Females were all very heavy with calf (if that is what you call them before they are born)

I am hoping to see babies of a day or two - and there should be many soon.

Saw one near Tshokwane last Saturday - mom still not with a herd so it was very young but agile.
