Impalas are one of the 89 species of even-toed ungulates in Africa. We observed these graceful beauties at Sweetwaters in Kenya. Impalas are a medium-sized antelope with lovely long necks and limbs. They are able to jump 8 feet high and distances of over 30 feet. Impalas run on their tiptoes, as do all ungulates. They are usually found near a source of water.
