What Zebra species you can expect to see in East-Africa
On your safari you can expect to see these generally social animals, with their distinctive black and white striped coats. These stripes will just mesmerise as you see healthy animals, happy in their natural habitat
Zebras live in small harems to large herds. Unlike their closest relatives; horses & donkeys, zebras have never been truly domesticated. On your safari, you can spot them almost everywhere; grasslands, savannas, woodlands, thorny scrub-lands, mountains and coastal hills.
Here are some of the Zebra species you will get to see:
Plains Zebras (more horse like)
Grants zebra - seen in the rift valley & Maasai Mara
Crawshay's zebra - seen in Tanzania while on a Tanzania safari. These zebra have very narrow stripes compared to other sub-species of the Plains zebra
Grévy's zebra resembles an ass, to which it is closely related. Grévy's zebra and the mountain zebra are endangered. While plains zebras are much more plentiful. Grévy's zebra, also known as the imperial zebra, is the largest and most threatened of the three species of zebra. The other two being the plains zebra and the mountain zebra. Named after Jules Grévy, Grévy's zebra can be spotted on your Kenya Safari. Compared with other zebras it is tall, has large ears, and its stripes are narrower.
A really sad fact
Hunting for skins and habitat destruction have had a severe impact on zebra populations throughout Africa.
