The mother and cubs watched the impala herd for quite some time. At the very back of the herd was a male who was limping. The mother locked on and took off at a quick pace. She went from first to fifth gear in 100 yards. It was incredible to see her speed and strategic ability. As she went behind tall bushes we knew she had the impala. Once we caught up to her she was still suffocating it. She sat with it for several minutes to catch her breath and then she stood up and started calling for the cubs. They were still back where she started but they could hear those faint chirping sounds. It was incredible as they came running across the sand"
