Impala win gold medal for wrestling

The first champion of the Africa Exclusive safari games is the elegant impala, who wins the gold medal for wrestling.

During their breeding season impalas engage in a three week long wrestling match. When the breeding season arrives the male impalas’ testosterone levels soar. They become fiercely protective of their territory and fight for dominance over the female herds and, consequently, the all-important mating rights. The males lock horns and engage in long fights. Whoever wins claims the territory with huge snorts and loud growls that can be heard from far away. The new dominant male will take charge of the herds of females and attempt to mate with as many as possible – but never the same one twice!

Impala can be found in several African safari destinations including Botswana, Zimbabwe, Kenya, South Africa, Zambia and Tanzania. Keep your eyes peeled for them during your safari activities.
