Having seen the colourful Zebras on the news and driving past a few in town, a friend suggested we take the kids on the trail. You can download or pick up a app and there’s even an app for you to log your Zebra finds. It felt a bit like ‘Pokémon Go’ but on the search for something that actually exists!!! At times, we actually crossed paths with a number of Pokémon hunters!
There are 198 Zebras to find all over Southampton & at Marwell Zoo, some life size and also some mini ones inside shops, cafes & restaurants.
The trail took us all over Southampton and we clocked up over 11,000 steps! What a great way to get active, entertain the kids and discover Southampton! The app (on the right) can link to your smartphone activity monitor to track exactly how many steps you do searching for the Zebras – so if you’re aiming to reach the governments 10,000 steps a day target, it’ll certainly tick that box!
What struck us most, was how blessed Southampton is with parks and green space. We were taken through areas we haven’t often ventured before and particularly on such a gorgeous sunny day, the parks and open spaces were beautiful. We vowed to return to some of the spaces and managed a stop at Houndwell Park en-route for some extra exercise!
