Male impala chases away another male Impala - 2 of 3 In Lake Manyara NP, Tanzania we suddenly were surprised by two male Impalas racing by our jeep. Likely this was a dispute of establishing dominance. Dominant male Impalas get all the females in a harem whilst the rest gets nothing. However, dominance comes with a steep price. You can't help but wonder who is better off.  Aepyceros melampus,Africa,Impala,Lake Manyara,Tanzania Click/tap to enlarge
