Zebra Crossing

Travelling in the Maasai Mara in Kenya in August, we parked one morning alongside the Mara River and watched as a herd of skittish Burchells Zebra made the crossing. With Nile crocodiles lurking, hooves and water flying, the tension was palpable; as was our relief to see those who had safely navigated their passage scrambling up the river bank.
