Zebras Hoof It in Longest Land Migration in Africa

Surprise! Africa’s longest known animal migration is not located in the Serengeti. Rather it’s the migration of Burchell’s Zebra that stretches from Namibia to Botswana—a 300+ mile seasonal trek, according to WWF.

The migration—which involves up to several thousand zebra traveling in a north-south direction—occurs entirely within the largest transboundary conservation area in the world, a region known as the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA).
