November is a very special time to be in Kruger to see the many Impala lambs. Last year November we saw many lambs on the Skukuza- Tshokwane road. Wish I was there.

HOWEVER, I saw something much rarer............................

"Born to be Wild" is about the birth of an Impala. These are the great moments of nature to welcome new life. I hope you will enjoy this video. 8) :wink:
