Zebras, Kidepo Valley National Park, Uganda by Ricardo Ferreira

I had the pleasure of living in Kidepo Valley National Park, in Uganda, for about 1 year and a half. It’s one of the most beautiful parks in all East Africa and yet one of the least visited. This is actually a good thing. Nature and wildlife lovers that visit this park search different experiences away from the usual crowds of other parks.
Wildlife is not so used to humans, but is quite relaxed nonetheless. Zebras are in good numbers and are an almost guaranteed sighting. Kidepo is home to the Burchell’s zebra, subspecies of the plain zebra. I photographed these two specimens in the end of the afternoon when the light was particularly beautiful. I spent some time around them, until they got used to me and became more relaxed. Zebras usually stand in this position, not only to connect, but mainly to be attentive to eventual predators, as each one is looking to opposite directions.
