    Safari - Return of the Zebra

    Hey everyone! I hadn't seen this posted, so I thought I'd share!


    Quite a while ago Zebras once inhabited the Harmabe Wildlife Reserve, sadly they were removed.... Yet remnants still remained on the animal tracking guide. Many would ask safari drivers where the zebras were, which they were not allowed to answer. As far as they were concerned, zebras did not exist.

    Well happily enough, the zebras made a comeback Two Weekends ago. They have been in training, so the first week all the predator animals were covered up and the White rhinos removed. Then slowly the animals were uncovered, rhinos brought back.. And Zebras out mingling. Due to training they are not always out, and often removed before Safaris closes for the night. I have gone twice, and had the misfortune of missing them both times.. The first time going they weren't out that day.. Second time they were taken away early. But they are there, and gorgeous! I have seen several photos.

    So trot on down to the Safari, and check out the return of this gorgeous animal.

    Hello, We went on the safari ride yesterday and did see the zebras. I didn't know that they had been taken away in the first place. Why did they go away???

    Zebras are very picky animals. They think they're better than all the other animals and because of that, they don't get along very well with others.

    The words "they're bad actors, who don't play well with others" were used by one of the education cast members at Rafiki's Planet Watch to describe why the zebras were missing from the Safari attraction. Apparently, bullying and worse come when zebras are mixed in confined areas with other grazing / herding animals.

    This was all very above-board, by the way. No big secret.

    Maybe they decided to all stand around in line right by the lions, like on the Jungle Cruise, just to see what would happen...
