Cute baby zebra’s first steps into life

One of the highlights of my recent overland trip has to be an incredible baby zebra scene we experienced right beneath our eyes whilst in the Ngorongoro Crater. The footage was captured only a few minutes after mother zebra had given birth, and it shows all the stages baby zebra goes through before it finally gets up.

Enjoy baby zebra’s first steps! 😉
