Zebra are just so Africa! It’s been such a priviledge to have spent many enjoyable hours simply watching these social and comical icons of Africa. Animal behaviour has always been a real fascination, and Zebra have always provided much to enjoy in watching their interactions and antics. Placing fairly high on a number of predators preferred meal plans, Zebra are always alert and ready to bolt at a moments notice.

Although Canadian by birth, I grew up in Africa and from an early age travel became a regular part of my life. As a result I developed an early passion for my two great loves, Africa and aviation. Being fortunate to return to Africa every year with our own safari company “Explorations Africa”, all of my photos of wildlife are taken in their natural and unstaged settings. Please visit us at

    WOW and DOUBLE WOW!!!!!!!! This is one spectacular image.
    I was overwhelmed by the spectacular beauty of zebras as seen in the wild, nothing like their counterparts in pens in a zoo where captivity seems to have robbed them of their true visual impact, vibrancy and zest.

    Thanks Carol – and yes a very interesting observation. They’re a listless, cardboard reflection of the real thing.
