We spent lunch and the afternoon and early evening at Mlilwane Wildlife Sanctuary. A few of us took an open air LandRover tour of the park to see ample zebra, impala, antelope, wildebeast, monkeys and a hippo. Amazing vistas of the hills and valleys here in Swaziland - strikingly beautiful. The weather was very pleasant so the animals were out in force and it was comfortable for us. Mostly pictures tell the story.

They are seen together for 2 reasons: zebras eat tall grass, wildebeests like short grass; wildebeests have good sense of smell, zebras have good hearing and sight. They commingle for safety.
