Well folks, today is my last entry for Frizztext’s A-Z archive photo challenge. I knew we were approaching the end, but it is still sad to see it come. To celebrate the letter Z, I wanted to share some of my photos of zebras. It wasn’t until our third camp, in the Okavango Delta, where we finally came across some zebras. And to be honest, I had forgotten all about them. I was so excited to see elephants, lions, hippos, leopards, crocodiles…the list goes on. Then we found some zebras and wow. They are amazing animals. Beautiful and graceful. But we didn’t get to see many of them and that was a disappointment.
At our fourth and last camp outside the Central Kalahari Game Reserve we hit the zebra motherload.
They were even visible right from my tent.

Middle was just telling me they saw baby zebras at the Safari park we have here and that the stripes were still brown and not black, yet. I didn’t even realize that they don’t turn black until they are bigger.
I would love to see a baby zebra. I don’t think I ever have, not even at a zoo. Interesting about the brown stripes. It makes sense, but I never thought about it.
Such beautiful creatures, you really were so lucky! Love that last shot of them in the water.
I really enjoying sitting outside my tent and watching them in the morning and evening hours.
Zebras are amazing, I totally love your photos! 🙂
Thanks for the wonderful comment 🙂
Wow, I can’t even imagine what a thrill it would be to camp right in the middle of such amazing wildlife. That would be the thrill of a lifetime and maybe a tiny but scary too :). I love the first photo – he looks like he’s saying, “hey what are you lookIng at?!?!”
It was beautiful, but I won’t lie, a little scary. Especially when they are telling you how to get through the lion gate…lions! And the toilet was outside the tent. Let’s just say I didn’t use it unless during the daylight hours.
Hope you didn’t have any accidents!! LOL 🙂
Like I would tell.
Hmmm, maybe I’ll have to ask your better half. This could be good for a funny story or two! 🙂
You never know, I might be protecting the better half from an embarrassing situation. In this case, I’m not, but you never know…okay, it is usually me involved in the embarrassing situation. Why is that!
No comment!! LMAO 🙂
Somehow I knew you would have some great zebra photos! Awesome!
Thanks…I almost didn’t. We had excellent guides.
A beautiful animal that you took amazing photos of.
BE ENCOURAGED! BE BLESSED!
They are wonderful. Thanks Francine.
love seeing them at the water like that. What a precious memory for you.
I will never forget Africa…and I’m hoping to go back in a few years.

Lovely! When I visited Etosha in Namibie way back in 1974 there were thousands of zebra moving from the water hole early morning back to the veld where they were grazing
That must have been amazing to see!
It sure was. I have lots of photo slides which I must put on my computer so that I can print them and put them in an album
What a great memory! I would love to see the great migration.
Amazing photos as always, TBM. perfect indeed for the letter Z. 🙂
Thanks Myra. Hope you are enjoying your travels.
Your posts always amaze me! Wonderful!
What a lovely view you had from your tent… Love the pics. 🙂
Our view was great, I didn’t want to leave.
That is so cool! I love it 🙂
Loved seeing the Zebras:) Thank you for sharing! Love your blog and look forward to your posts:)
Thanks! Soon I’ll be collecting more memories from travels and I’m super excited to come back and share.
I am sure he will come up with something new.
they are all really great but to me your last picture is the most beautiful
Thanks Rosa…I miss sitting outside of the tent watching the animals drink the water.
we’ll start next Tuesday with “A” again!
Cool…I missed out on the first half of the alphabet. Now I can correct that.
I love to use animal prints every where only if they are reproductions. Often time my clients ask me to use real animal skin in their décor and I refuse.
I would refuse as well. I don’t know the legality about using some animal skin, but for me it is a personal choice. I love animals too much to see them used in such a way. Thanks for sharing.
I second the feeling.
Wonderful! I just got to see the African safari photos taken by some family friends last month, and OH how impressive all the animals – and the zebras are certainly among the most striking. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Julia. Zebras are so majestic and I could watch them for hours.
