Aruna's Real Africa: McDonalds!

In Kruger you are almost guaranteed to see McDonalds....

No, not the restaurant....
No, not discarded Big Mac boxes and McFlurry containers...

But the McDonalds of the bush; the Impala

Trying not to become a snack!
One reason they are called this is because there are about 120.000 impala in the park, which makes them the go-to snack for many predators. Lions, leopard, cheetah, wild dog, hyena, crocodile will all easily be able to catch impala. Even baboons have been known to eat them.

Because they are so common many people pass them by, but if you take the time for a good look you will see that they are beautiful animals.

The other reason they are called the McD of the bush ... take a good look ..
Yep, they all have the 'golden arches' ... a nice M for McDonalds on their butt ;-)
