Zebras are highly social animals, extremely alert and have good hearing and eyesight. They are bulk grazers so found in grassland areas unless passing through bushy areas in search of water. They are a water-dependent species so will always be found near water. They are best hunted in the early morning and late afternoon whilst grazing and not as alert whilst resting up during the middle of the day and constantly scanning the horizon for predators and hunters.
Why hunt Boehm's Zebra?
Zebra skins are one of the most popular trophies that hunters bring home from an African safari. The pattern of stripes is unique for each individual animal and also differentiates between subspecies. Zebras are not served as meals at every hunting camp, but many hunters who tried it say that it’s some of the tastiest venison they’ve ever eaten. Zebra hunting offers a unique challenge and a different edge to your plains game safari, and the striking black-and-white stripes, whether as a carpet on the wall, a rug on the floor, or a piece of original taxidermy, will be a constant reminder of the experience - and an endless inspiration to think about enigmatic Africa.
