Yes. Indeed. "The Great Zebra Exodus" is yet another impressive and educational wildlife documentary from the PBS Network.

Set in the dry, barren lands of Botswana, South Africa - This exceptionally photographed presentation closely follows the zebras as they travel in herds, searching for food and water.

I found it quite surprising to see the fierce conflicts that arise between the zebra stallions who are either searching for mates or else protecting their harem of mares from other aggressive males.

All-in-all - This is certainly a documentary that will not leave you disappointed.

The "Great Zebra Exodus" is, indeed, a happy/sad wildlife documentary that closely traces the yearly journey of African zebras (in Botswana) as they continually search for grazing land and water.

This beautifully filmed presentation not only provides the curios viewer with plenty of informative narration about the zebras' struggle for survival - But, it also emphasizes the very close-knit family ties that exist amongst these remarkably attractive, striped horses of the wild.

The "Great Zebra Exodus" is a very educational, 60-minute program impressively presented by the PBS Network through their "Nature" series.

Terrific cinematography, but the narration detracts somewhat due to anthropomorphism. Interesting facts, though.

There is perhaps only so many times you can do documentaries on the migrations of African herd animals, but this documentary mostly works, primarily because of the spectacular camerawork.

You can't fault the zebra's but while interesting, this doc is a bit lacking, still it's well worth watching.
