Rumors that the strange foal is cursed spread and, before long, he is blamed for the drought that sets into the Great Karoo. When even his father, the leader of the herd, blames him for the lack of rain and the subsequent death of his mother, the outcast zebra leaves the confines of his home knowing that he cannot survive in the herd without all his stripes. Khumba ventures beyond the fence - vulnerable to the ferocious Leopard, Phango, who controls the waterholes and terrorizes the animals in the Great Karoo. Khumba is rescued from an opportunistic wild dog by a quirky duo: a wildebeest and an ostrich. Mama V is a self-confessed free spirit who does not want to be the average stay-at-home mom, like other wildebeest.

Silver when a child, read about an animal which was thought to be extinct called a Quagga with half stripes.

The Quagga Project Association has with the help of volunteers has been trying to breed this extinct variety "back to life" and a foal was born and named after the lead character in the film.

AWESOME, rich, layered, hilarious and heartwarming! Great experience all round.
My daughter totally loved this movie!!! I found it beautiful and of a really high standard. It took me right into my memories of the Karoo- I could smell, hear and feel it, as I watched. AWESOME story, characters and AND animation, great job!! It was also seriously very funny, there were moments when I cried with laughter and then had tears in heartfelt moments. The voices were so well cast!!! I loved the blend of accents, the blend of cultures.. a TRUE Rainbow film, but not just for South Africa.. it is a film EVERYONE will love.
Congrats.. and Kudos to the ENTIRE team and all their partners etc.
I happily give this movie a 9 - it is a big winner for me, from a small studio...LOVE it!
