Route Tours in South Africa, Discovering The Zebra
Zebra has mesmerized many travelers over the
years and we find ourselves staring at this striped horse over
and over again. Why the stripes? How did evolution shape this
horse-like species into what we know today as a Zebra?
The Zebra is an animal found throughout South
Africa, and finding them by the hundreds is a quick and
easy task in Addo during Garden Route Tours.
Africa is very well known and popular for the wildlife
viewing and close encounters the country provides for nature enthusiasts
wishing to get some personal time with animals. The Garden
Route has proved to be a wonderful alternative to the
parks in the North of South Africa, and Addo
National Park is slowly but surely becoming a hot favourite to
include on Garden Route tours. Many animals can
be found roaming the Garden Route areas, and
the Zebra is no exception. Opportunities to join
scheduled wildlife tours or viewing the animals
from your private vehicle are readily available.
though the Zebra looks and acts very much like
the regular horses we know, it does in fact have some internal
differences with regards to the placement of it's organs. This
is why we are unable to ride a Zebra as we would
a horse. A newly born Zebra has the amazing ability
to identify it's mother by the stripes on her face, minutes after
being born. Also, no Zebra has the same stripe
pattern. Just like our fingerprints, the Zebra
has a unique pattern of stripes unlike any other Zebra.
In South Africa and The Garden Route
a variety of Zebra can be found, of which the
stripes are slightly more brown rather than black.
