Kalahari Zebra

Zebra in a stormy landscape

Stormy zebra

Zebra are herd animals, and here they can be seen running across a dry landscape. This painting was inspired by the Kalahari Desert and the Magkadikadi pans, where one of the largest migrations of zebra and wildebeest in Africa occurs. As with all migrations, the movement of the animals is governed by the coming of the rains, and here the zebra are moving back into the desert in the rainy season to take advantage of the grassy plains which will be full of nutritious food after a long dry winter.
