Look Both Ways

Exploring through Kenya, on safari, we learned we were way too early to witness the great zebra and wildebeest migration. As we ventured through three preserves in Kenya, teeming with animals, we then crossed over into Tanzania and entered into the Serengeti. The deeper and deeper we explored into the preserve, the amount of zebras and wildebeest were increasing rapidly. Soon there were thousands of them as far as the eye could see. Before long they were running full speed across the plains and through the ravines.

We learned this was the beginning of the great migration, deep in Tanzania, and much later they would reach their final destination in Kenya. What an incredible feast for the eyes! We were surround by them watching in awe all the activity around us. Our guides explained many of the females were pregnant. The zebras stop just long enough to give birth and within 15 minutes this baby zebra is standing, within the hour she begins to run with her mama. We amazingly witnessed many wobbly legged baby zebra and wildebeest off and running!

Lucy’s Safari Adventures series will be unveiled at the Phoenix Zoo’s, “Art on the Wild Side” exhibition Feb 1 – May 31, 2020. Artists, Lucy Dickens, Joye DeGoede, and Anne Peyton will showcase their unique visions of wildlife and conservation in the Savanna Gallery, located in the Savanna Grill.

“Art on the Wild Side” is a great collaboration between The Arizona Center for Nature Conservation/Phoenix Zoo and select local artists to display their work in our new Savanna Gallery. This rotating exhibit enhances our guests’ experience to not only see live animals on Zoo grounds, but also be inspired by the beautiful artwork along the walls of the Gallery, helping us communicate the importance of national and international conservation efforts. Exhibited artwork embraces the mission of the Phoenix Zoo: to advance the stewardship and conservation of animals and their habitats while providing experiences that inspire people and motivate them to care for the natural world.”
