Serengeti is a region of grasslands and woodlands in Africa shared between the countries of Tanzania in the south and Kenya in the north. The whole region is spread over around thirty thousand square kilometers. Eighty percent of this region lies in Tanzania.
It has more than 1.6 million herbivores and thousands of predators. Mostly found animals in this region are the wildebeests, gazelles, zebras and buffalos.
This area is most famous for the migration that takes place every year. Every year around October nearly 1.5 million herbivores travel towards the southern plains, crossing the Mara River, from the northern hills for the rains. And then back to the north through the west, once again crossing the Mara river, after the rains in around April. This phenomenon is sometimes also called the Circular Migration.

Nice title. This is a postcard type of composition, beautiful. I like how they all are looking straight at you.

very nice shot. Sharp and well composed. It reminds me the wild beauty of Tanzania and the so smart walk of girafes into the savana at sunset...! TFS

Hello Oscar, this is a wonderful picture of these three giraffes. The lighting is good and you have captured the details of their hide perfectly. Like all good portraits you have the subject off centre and I like the other creatures in the opposite corner as a balance. Are they hyenas?

Wonderful, funny photo. I love the way they are looking at you, especially the one peeking from the back! The photo is really sharp and the colors are excellent. Very good DOF with the other animal blurred in the background.

Me encanta esta foto!! Me gustan mucho los animales y en este caso son animales que solo he visto en un zoologico y verlos aqui en un momento tan natural y curioso pero en libertad, genial!
Ah! y gracias Carlos por un comentario reciente en mi foto de Montevideo.

Another super wildlife image Oscar. You can almost sense the heat of the plains. The intertwining necks are a familiar sight and you capturted it well.
