Travel Photo of the Day (Feb. 8)

Impalas, a medium-sized Antelope, were everywhere in Botswana.  Their name derives from the Zulu language and it means gazelle.  Our guide, while he would discuss them, would often fly right by them since they are so common.  It is estimated that there are 2 million in Africa.  However, I really enjoyed seeing them.  Their faces are so sincere.

    So much expression on it’s face. It shouldn’t be doe eyes, but rather impala eyes that people refer to.
