Photographer's Note

Zebras are usually nervous animals, difficult to approach at close range.

So we were quite surprised to be able to drive by this one, approaching him softly and slowly, while he wouldn't move or even look at us. At one point, we were incredibly close and we began to thought that he might be sick.

So after taking this shot (and many others...), we left him alone, only to realize that he have been freshly attacked by a lion or a leopard, his neck being wide open on the other side, showing the bloody flesh.

Of course we were horrified and felt absolutely bad for this gracious animal, unable to help him and knowing he must be suffering terribly.

So far I had the chance to visit iconic Kruger National Park and Etosha National Park, but I think that Hluhluwe-Imfolozi is the most stunning of them all, with incredibly beautiful landscapes, plenty of rhinos and elephants to observe and admire at very close distance and by many occasions while driving around.

Highly recommended!
