On my recent trip into Kruger last week I was amazed at how few zebra we saw. We stayed in the South of the park, not going any higher then Skukuza. Has any other forumites noticed this and does anyone know were they have gone? Do they move north in winter? I love seeing zebra and most days we only saw a few zebra.

I realised and noted the exact same. I remember in the old days the used to migrate from the Satara region to the Croc Bridge region. Whether this is the case now, I wouldn't be able to tell.

Have seen reports recently of zebra and wildebeest busy 'migrating' to the south. Also didn't see one zebra or wildebeest in the Berg-en-Dal - Afsaal area in March during a weekend trip.
I know that in early spring there are usually herds of big numbers to be found on the H10.

Later in summer they then tend be more to the north, in the Satara region.

Hi all

Here is my weekly update:
The H10 is also returning to its former glory with Zebra and Wildebeest slowly returning from up north and the Lebombo Mountains. Small herds are mostly visible north of the S129 and the Munshe back loop……


Seems they went mountaineering, and they are on their way back :wink:

Mark are the Mountain Zebra found in the Darlington dam area of Addo because I have never seen any in the main game area around the main camp.???

Boulder, I have just checked my copy of Addo Elephant National Park Offical Guide and it does have Cape Mountain Zebra listed as a species found in Addo but it is marked as being found outside the main game viewing section of the Park.

That sounds correct because the habitat apparently around the Darlington Dam area is quite similar to Mtn Zebra Park, so it makes sense to have them there. The Spekboomveld is totally unsuited though ie the main vegetation type of the main game area. I must get one of those guides...I just run around teaching myself and make my own observations but having a guide will help.
