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.

Saw this very dark Burchell's Zebra on the H2-2 in Kruger on the 20th of October. It looks like its pattern is reversed because the black stripes are as wide as the white stripes on the other zebras. It also hardly shows the typical shadow stripe, which made me also think of a reversed pattern. Anybody familiar with this?

we quite often see 2 zebras like this.
can someone please tell me what they are doing exactly. Is it a mating couple? Are they just resting their head or does this mean something particular ?
thx

I think it's more keeping an eye out for danger, watching both ways, and being friendly.

I was told by a guide in Tanzania that they do it for resting their heads.

We saw this zebra mare with a stallion in close attendance on the H10 some way before Nkumbi in Sept. Anyone else seen one with such overgrown hooves and any idea if it is laminitis ?
She was really battling to walk and lay down quite often.

This zebra provided us with some humour. He kept on moving his uppper lip which resulted in a smile, showing his large teeth. At one stage his lip was shivering which was very amusing. However, hard as we tried, we just could not manage to capture his smile (cheezy) on film. After zooming in, we saw the reason for this funny behaviour, a tick/gogga on his nose :lol:

We have also seen this behavior before, and I must say it is adorable. Lokks like there was a bee on his nose.
