On Safari: Zebra Dusting!

Zebra Dusting

One of my favorite things I learned on safari was a dance a move called “Zebra Dusting”. It’s so easy and effective. You just find the perfect spot in the middle of the dance floor while making eye contact with as many people as possible. Then, without so much as cracking a smile, you quickly get on your back, throw your legs and hands up and shake, shake, shake, shake. Shake it off.

Hahahah, okay. No.

What actually happened was we ran into a heard of zebras dusting themselves in the middle of the day under the scorching hot African sun. They do this to stay cool. It’s really practical and effective since they never seem to be the animal enjoying a spot under the shade (Those damn wildebeest!).

Our driver admitted that zebra dusting is quite hard to see because it’s unpredictable and happens so quickly. He had a group of visitors that specifically said they wanted to see some zebras dusting themselves, but weren’t able to.

We are the lucky ones.

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that the 5 day Safari we did at the Mara Naboisho Conservancy in Kenya was one of the best experiences I’ve had.

Ever.

It went by way too quickly and we miss it so much already.

It’s hard to put everything we saw and felt into words, but hopefully the few pictures below (we took way too many) will help.

If you’re thinking of doing a safari or have always wanted to, all I can say is don’t be a fool and JUST DO IT! You won’t regret it.
