Selous Impala Newsletter January 2015 - by Dennis Mchopa

Dennis Mchopa

My name is Dennis Mchopa.
I was born in 1973 at Masasi in Mtwara Region – in the south of Tanzania.
While still young I got my certificate in guiding at the National College of Tourism.
I’ve been working at Impala Camp since 2003.

Does the Female Impala carry horns?

For all of us guides at Impala camp, observing nature is every day terrific and enjoyable. One of the most common animals to see in the reserve is Impala.

Female Impala with horn

During a recent game drive we saw a female group of impala - one of them with a horn -  very rare to see. Usually only males carry horns. The strongest males will have a group of females which he guards strenuously. The rest of the males are usually in separate groups.

Female animals can inherit male hormones, developing sometimes physical features of the male.
It is nice for us discovering new sides to nature and show its beauty to our guests.

Steve Brynes runs a Safari blog, and has written some great articles about his stays at Kwihala and at Selous Impala :

The Safari Advisor

Kwintessential Kwihala: A Gem in Rugged Ruaha  - by Steve Brynes

Ruaha Lions  Ruaha Jackals

“Go West,” American journalist Horace Greeley famously advised young men looking for personal success in mid-nineteenth century America
Lounging at the airport in Arusha, I mused that the same advice appeared to be in play for the majority of visitors to Tanzania as they waited
to fly west to such iconic places as Ngorongoro Crater and the Serengeti in pursuit of safari success.
I’m not a young man, but my faculties are still reasonably intact, so I instead headed south to Ruaha,
a park known for its large elephant and buffalo herds, as well as its lion prides that can include twenty-plus members.
This course was set after much research, including extensive reading and speaking with those in the know, all of which presaged
a world-class safari without that major distraction of the northern venues…..people. And in much the same way, I decided on Kwihala,
a camp located near the Mwagusi River, an area renowned for its outstanding game viewing, as my base for a 7-day stay in October 2012.
