Actually, my partner still has a hat with a zebra skin band on it. He bought it in Africa about 30 years ago. I would be surpriised if you could still get them.
You can. Certain places in South Africa are the last bastions of machismo endangered animal slaughter.
Which vexes me greatly.
Although - It has to be said that some species of Zeb are "two a penny" - and that there are many places where you can get "natural" hide. Please make sure you do.
Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if you could still get them. What would be surprising would be getting it through customs and into the U. S. I really have no desire to come back with any animal skins. Hopefully all I'll bring back are some great photos.
It looks like we are going to do the Garden Route, Port Elizabeth, Addo, and the route between Oudtshoorn and Cape Town. We'll probably do a lot of exploring in between those destinations and hopefully see a lot of wildlife.
The picture below was taken by my partner during one of his first trips to the area. He's very excited about returning there and hopes to see more of the euphorbias.
