From the makers of the Adventures in Zambezia comes a new n exciting tale of Khumba (voiced by Jake T Austin), a half zebra who is abandoned by his herd because he is born with only half his stripes.
wThe superstitious herd blames him for the drought and wants nothing to do with him. Even his father rejects him and blames him for the death of his mother.
Being the determined and ambitious zebra that he is, Khumba manages to show that even though life is not black and white, he can excel at anything he sets his minds to.
Chasing his dream, he sets out on a journey with a sassy wildebeest and a hilarious ostrich, Mama V (Lorreta Devine) to bring water to the Karoo desert by finding a legendary waterhole where the first zebras got their stripes.
