[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Gnu Migration is one of the best known migration of mammals worldwide. More than a million Gnus and half a million of Zebras migrate between the southern plains of the Serengeti in Tanzania and the Massai Mara in Kenya.
A road project in Tanzania between Arusha and Lake Victoria, passing through the northern part of Serengeti National Park is a new thread. Let's hope the southern option passing south of Serengeti will be chosen.

A Magnificent scene with endless depth of field Tom! Lots of things to see here and animals to count. If I may ask: .. is the Gnu actually the same animal know as Wildebeest in some parts of the world?
