Zebras, the Stripped animals of Uganda
Uganda is always considered world over as one of the destinations that have a lot to offer for visiting guests from other countries / tourists. Uganda safari tours have been on the rise since the country stabilized its national security system following the early instability in the late 1980s. As a destination, it has been nick named the Pearl of Africa and this is replicated especially when it comes to Uganda safari game viewing.
Any traveler on a Uganda Safari has a high chance of being overwhelmed with many wildlife species that are encountered, and to me, among the many that will stand out significantly is this beautiful black and white stripped common animal – the Uganda zebra.
One of the major amazing facts about these zebras is that as many as they are in Uganda and world over, there are no zebras that have the same stripe pattern and this may not be noticed until one examines them closely.
These stripes have currently been adopted in the fashion industry and have inspired fashion trends across the world however for the zebra, it naturally ‘wears’ them naturally and they are more for protection than fashion. These stripes are a camouflage that enables these zebras to hide from predators especially lions and leopards. It becomes difficult for these predators to differentiate a zebra from another in a herd.
An Africa safari Tour to Uganda will expose a traveler to many of these beautifully looking animals, as Uganda is zebra country. One will see them in a number of Ugandan national parks while on your Uganda safari and it is still much easier to catch views of them in some parks than in other parks. Lake Mburo national Park and Kidepo valley National park and are the parks with the best zebra viewing experiences.
Although Kidepo valley national Park is very remotely positioned, in the northern region of Uganda, it still offers the best zebra views on a Uganda tour with a big number of zebras grazing out in the Savannah grasslands.
While on a safari in Uganda, there is nothing as beautiful and attracting as sights of the beautiful stripped animals moving as a herd. The zebra is an incentive for people who visit Lake Mburo national park and Kidepo valley national park.
