Black and white by Explorations Africa Dan MacKenzie

There’s good reason for a group of zebra (Equus quagga) being described as a ‘dazzle’. Apparently predators such as the lion can only see in black and white and presented with the dazzle of overlapping white and black zebra stripes, it’s little wonder that lions are unsuccesful in the majority of their attempts to bring them down.

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
