Serengeti Gnu by Ryszard Wierzbicki

One of Africa’s most well-known, the Serengeti is associated with both animals and traditional African landscapes. A great place to see wildlife in Africa is Serengeti National Park. In the southern Serengeti, where 500,000 calves are born between January and March, the Great Migration of around two million wildebeest begins. As the Great Migration was coming to a conclusion, I had the opportunity to go on safari and had an incredible photographic hunting experience. On this particular day, the gnu was one of the last objects I could see on the horizon.
