...A Few Things To Know

Beautifully patterned, this very decorative trophy is distinguished from the more common Burchell’s or plains zebra by a characteristic dewlap. On both hind legs the narrow black stripes of the body swerve into a broad horizontal striping. While with the Burchell’s zebra the black stripes meet underneath the belly, the Hartmann’s zebra has a plain white belly. The Burchell’s zebra has stripes to the knees only, while the Hartmann’s zebra has distinctly striped legs down to the hooves.

The animals stay on rocky slopes in small family units of five to eight animals during the day. Late in the afternoon they usually start to move downhill to drink and feed in the valleys during the night. Mountain Zebra country is characterized by deeply trodden game paths and well-used dust bowls.

Hartmann’s Mountain Zebra hunting is sporting and adventurous. In most cases the most laborious part of the hunt is bringing down the meat from the mountain.
