Mountain Zebra

The craggy heights of the Mountain Zebra National Park’s Bankberg embrace rolling plains and deep valleys and has become an entrancing preserve for the Cape Mountain zebra. The Cape Mountian zebra differ from the plains zebra by having narrower stripes, absence of shadow stripes and orange facial colouration.

The park contains a rich variety of plant species and in spring the veld is covered with flowers. Fynbos and renosterveld bush flourish in the temperate climate where the rains come mainly during early summer and winter.
