Playfully running through the African bush, these graceful animals appear to glide through the air.

Despite the effort requited to jump so high, the impalas carried on racing around for an hour.

The playful animals were pictured by South African photographer Lisl Moolman in Kruger National Park in April.

Lisl, 43, said: “Watching these impalas playing by running and jumping at high speed was extremely special and amusing.

“They seem to have endless energy and this easily lasted for an hour.

“Photographing wildlife like this was initially a hobby, and it’s just developed from there.”
