IMPALA - This impala was drinking at the waterhole near the lodge. Impalas are always very careful and restless when they approach a waterhole. It took this impala several attempts (read 15 minutes) before she finally was confident enough to have a quick drink at the waterhole. But hey, what would you do with all those big cats nearby and crocs in the water?
