A small group of endangered Hartmann zebra on the edge of the Namib

A group of Hartmann zebra huddled together on the slopes of the Namib desert escarp. Namibia is currently in the grip of one of the worst droughts in history. Natural waterholes in the Namib desert are dried up. This forces the animals to migrate to nearby farms. This image was taken on Farm Hornkranz in the Khomas Hochland.
