Etosha, Namibia


This photo was taken in Etosha National Park, Namibia. A Plains Zebra (Equus quagga, formerly Equus burchelli), also known as the Common zebra or the Burchell's zebra. Etosha National Park was first established in 1907, when Namibia was a German colony known as South West Africa. At the time, the park’s original 100,000 km² (38,500 mile²) made it the largest game reserve in the world. Due to political changes since its original establishment, the park is somewhat less than a quarter of its original size, but still remains a very large and significant area in which wildlife is protected.
