This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Migration Photos

In Botswana, one of the largest zebra migrations on the continent takes place each year, as some 25,000 zebra follow the rains and cross from the Okavango Delta to the Makgadikgadi Salt Pan grasslands to the southeast, stopping at hundreds of water holes along the way and eventually returning westward to the Okavango Delta.
