It was an amazing experience to be lucky enough to witness this Zebra mum give birth to this foal.
A first for me, and our guide of 13 years had never witnessed such an event!
This little one was up and ready to join the rest of the herd within 5 minutes! A great survival instinct as predators are ever present.
They did cross paths with a pack of wild dogs soon after this was taken, but mum's instinct to tread on her afterbirth was enough to keep the pack sated and keep enough distance between them.
An amazing and unforgettable scene to witness!
