Has anyone recently seen a zebra migration in Kruger? Is the Lower-Sabie/Tshokwane the only area where someone might see such a zebra migration?

There is a very good documentary video (probably in DVD by now) on zebras. The name escapes me but will dig it up if you like. Very interesting animals.

I have seen a few of your video clips while browsing the different topics. You've had some great sightings. :great:

Thank you for sharing.


Hi Digby,
Thank you for your comments and yes, I would be interested in the documentary you referred to.

Only two more months..... :dance: until we are back to KNP

Such a lovely gentle animal and so often overlooked in favour of the Big Cats. :roll:

Did You Know? :hmz:
The top speed of a Zebra is between 60 and 70 km/h, but the herd will run as fast as the slowest member of the herd to stay together.

Taken on the H6. She was a little model, showed no fear, posing perfectly for her photo to be taken. Absolutely gorgeous!
