Free-living Hartmann zebra at the Daan Vilioen Game Reserve, Khomas Hochland, were studied over a two-year period. Attention was given to nutritional, social, comfort and sanitary activities and the various activity patterns determined. Diferent macro-climatic factors that may influence this behaviour were considered. Although daily activity patterns were variable a basic pattern was perceivable.
