It might be difficult to spot zebras among a million wildebeasts migrating in Tanzania and Kenya. Luckily, a decent number of these cute mammals migrate on their own between Namibia and Botswana driven by seasonal drought.

Around 20,000 thirsty zebras may be spotted between June and October revitalizing on the banks of the Boteti River and Chobe River. Besides, good viewing spots include the grassland areas of the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan and Nxai Pan National Park.
