My Best Zebra Picture From the Masai Mara
A year ago today, I visited the Masai Mara in Kenya to experience The Great Migration and created this safari video of the experience. One of my favourite shots I took was this Zebra picture.
We had been driving around all day seeing zebra after zebra (there were thousands) and taking picture after picture (I have thousands). It all paid off though when I was watching these two zebras for a little while and I made click sound with my mouth. Always on the lookout for predators, they popped their heads up and looked right at my camera.
Bam! I got it. Best Zebra picture of the day.
Fortunately I had a somewhat black and white setting on at the time so the photo really shows off their stunning stripes. Did you know that like human fingerprints, no two zebras have the same stripe patterns? Now you know!
These Zebras were apart of The Great Migration which is where hundreds of thousands of Zebras and Wildebeest among other creatures make their way from the Serengeti in Tanzania to the Masai Mara in Kenya. The toughest part comes when they must cross the river infested with crocodiles. The migration is thought of as one of the greatest shows and spectacles on the planet. The fact that I was taking a photo of these two zebra meant they made it safe and sound.
I love how they are grazing so calmly and in peace.
If you have the chance to visit the Masai Mara, make sure you have a ton of memory card space. From zebras and lions to giraffe and all kinds of birds – you’ll be taking a ton of photos.
Be patient because though it could take a while, you might get a Zebra picture as nice as mine. Yes, I said ‘might’.
Do you have any fantastic pictures of Zebras? Where did you take them?!
