Zebra in Makgadikgadi National Park

Friday, August 31st, 2012

Our last stop through Botswan was the Magkadikgadi National Park and, although it has been hit quite hard by poachers, it is still an amzing place to visit.  We did not see any predators or Rhino in the park but we did see hundreds of Zebra as they flocked down to drink from the now permanent river which formed in 2008.  I have no idea why it suddenly appeared in this otherwise baron landscape of dust and thorn trees but it has formed an oasis for the animals to get what they need.  Water.  I managed to sneak out of my car and get down low as the Zebra lapped up the river water.
