There I was, crawling along in rush hour traffic, not something I allow myself to experience often, and I looked up at the reserve on hospital bend, as I always do when I go past.
A Cape Mountain zebra, standing dead still and another one to the left, he moved so he’s blurred. The photo is really bad, I know, it’s quite far away and my phone zoom isn’t powerful. But I couldn’t help reflecting on what a special place we live in. How many cities have a natural reserve with wild animals, right next to a 5-lane highway, in the middle of a city?
I hope you Capetonians make a point of looking up there when you drive past. Slow down, have a look, it won’t make you late and you’ll often see animals grazing on the slopes.
