Mountain Zebra National Park Travel Guide

No prizes for guessing which animal is the highlight of this Park. The Cape Mountain Zebra, the smallest of the living zebra species, at one time inhabited most of the Cape area in South Africa. Burgeoning human populations resulted in indiscriminate killing of the zebra and by 1922, only about 400 animals were left in the region. To stop the species from sliding over the edge and into oblivion, the Mountain Zebra National Park was established in 1937 amidst the acacia- rich veldt of the Eastern Cape. Today, as a result of careful conservation, 200 or more zebras inhabit the Park. The zebra population of the Park has in fact reached such a comfortable position that some animals have been transferred to other nature reserves.

Entry Permits

The gates to the Park are open from 7.00 am to 7.00 pm between October and April, and from 7.30 am to 6 pm the rest of the year. Entry passes- R12 per adult and R6 per child- can be purchased at the gate of the Park.
