We visited the Zebra Park last weekend. We found the Park very relaxing and quiet. Although there were a lot of cars in and around the camping area the roads in the park were very quiet.

There is no parking places near the dams and pools to watch the animals drinking and to take pictures from. But I still manage to get some good shots and we were very lucky to see a lot of birds and other animals.

Here are some pictures...

MZNP is a special place. I've been searching for those rhino's without any luck! :mrgreen: Well spotted!

Can you please tell me where and at what time of the day you've spotted them?
