13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Following The Migration

In the Masai Mara this year, we were just on time to witness an immense gathering of wildebeest and several river crossings. The most exciting moments were when we were surrounded by thousands of wildebeest and, when driving towards the Mara River to see them crossing, we were caught up by the wildebeest and for some time drove right in the middle of them, this way feeling totally part of the migration.
