When food is plentiful adult males will establish territories and round up any female herd that enter their grounds, chasing away bachelor males that follow. They will even chase away recently-weaned males. A male impala tries to prevent any female from leaving his territory. A male could be alone during transition after being ejected from a harem by a stronger male.
