Zebras live on the semi-arid grasslands and savannas of southern and eastern Africa. There are three species of zebras that survive in the wild. These are the plains zebra, the mountain zebra and Grevy's zebra.
The plains zebra is the most common species of zebra and is found across a wide swath of the continent, usually in open grasslands and scrubby woodlands. Mountain zebras live on arid slopes in Angola and Namibia and are found at elevations of up to 6,500 feet. Grevy's zebras are the most endangered species of zebra. They live in the semi-arid grasslands of northern Kenya and southern Ethiopia.
