Mountain Zebra stay and pictures

Unread postby Gary-sp » Fri Jun 19, 2015 8:35 pm

Wow! What a park!

My wife and I (from England) recently stopped for three nights at Mountain Zebra in between stops at Mokala and Addo. We were blown away by the beauty and scenery and would rate MZ as the best of the three parks we visited. We will definitely return.

We stopped in chalet 7 which was well equipped and more than spacious for just the two of us. The second bedroom became our luggage and camera equipment room. We had one meal at the restaurant which was very good. The rest of the time we tried our hand at the braii. Didn't master it as everything turned out well done to very well done!

Wildlife and bird sightings were excellent, though with scenery like that we both commented that they were an added bonus! We didn't see the MZ lions and we only caught a distant momentary glimpse of a cheetah despite taking the cheetah tracking trip. Despite not getting the prize of a cheetah close up at the end it was an exhilarating four and a half hour mountain walk and drive. Whilst on this drive we saw a magnificent herd of buffalo at close quarters.

Pictures of wildlife and birds spotted can be viewed here:
