He looks just like the one I saw on July 17 in the same location, just between the tented camp and the protected vegitation area going toward the waterhole hide. I am having trouble uploading a picture but will keep trying. He must frequent that area as it has less of a predator problem than perhaps closer to the river or the hide itself.

Gregor, the Limpopo Tented camp is in Mapungubwe, and yes, the pix was taken only 10 days ago at the start of a marvelous tour of the magnificent northern Limpopo (Mapungubwe and Pafuri)

Ok,

In that case this must be the same animal. Is he still in a bachelor's group?

The white impala did not seen particularly "part of" the rest of the impalas around as he was wandering about /grazing / browsing a little way off from a dispersed herd of mixed sex and age. Initially I though he was the only ram about, but now I am not so sure about that observation anymore.

This Impala was seen near the Kanniedood dam hide on the 10th of April this year. From the slightly grey patches on the back I think this may be the same impala that was seen by Bushbuddies at the same location!

And a really beautiful specimen he is turning out to be :thumbs_up:
Give him one more year to mature further , and he may aquire his own harem and then may even pass on his white genes :)
Seen at Kanniedood on 15th April 2012 .
