:) Nkulu.

Mcdonald(s) is the anglicised form of Gaelic Mac Dhomhnuill a patronymic from the personal name Domhnall, which is composed of the ancient Celtic elements domno- ‘world’ + val- ‘might’, ‘rule’ but in the Kruger National Park Impalas could mean easy prey for the predators such as the Lions
