Z is for Zebra

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.

  1. 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.

  2. Such beautiful creatures, you really were so lucky! Love that last shot of them in the water.

    Zebras are amazing, I totally love your photos! 🙂

  4. 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?!?!”

    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

    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.

    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.
