Okapi (Okapia johnstoni) Video Collection

In this post I have assembled a collection of all the high quality videos I could find featuring the zebra-horse-giraffe like Okapi, an animal that remained unknown to scientists until the 20th century.

Please leave a comment if any of the videos below is broken or if you have any other videos to suggest for inclusion:

A two-week-old  male okapi calf, Jack,  is walking and getting comfortable exploring his barn along with his mother,Ayana, at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.


An early 1990s documenary about Drs. John and Terese Hart and their research on the okapi in the Ituri Rain forest of Zaire, now the Democratic Republic of Congo. The documentary is about their life and work and also provides insight into the forest's fauna and the Mbuti ethnic group (BaMbuti Pygmies) who inhabit it.
