There is an abundance of Zebra everywhere we go. Unfortunately, they become a bit ho hum after a couple of days. Our guide says that most tourists get snooty about it and do not even stop to watch after the first day. We stop. I guess we are a bit odd. It is the stripes that make this horse like creature interesting. The pattens of the stripes are as unique as our fingerprints. The zebras in Tanzania have different stripes than the zebras in Botswana. Each time we stop to observe a group of them we try to get pictures of the Op Art patterns.

As they move across the plains they march along in single file – the line can stretch a very long way. Zebras can often be found grazing amongst wildebeest. Zebras do the great migration along with wildebeest, eland and Thompson Gazelles.

Our guide says that someone tried to domesticate zebras but it was not successful. Somehow I cannot picture a cowboy riding a zebra!
