First Place Scenery: Bill Harker - An iconic image on safari while in Kenya’s Amboseli National Park with clear views of Mount Kilimanjaro, framed by a lone bull elephant.Second Place Scenery: Terry Gray - Every morning I insisted that our guide Brooks find an amazing sunrise for me to photograph. On our very last morning in Africa, he outdid himself! The most unique sunrise I will ever see.Third Place Scenery: Laura Eberly - Sunset at Camp Jabulani, South Africa. The sunset, the elephant herd and the experience are truly life changing events. The elephants will teach us so much, if we just take time to watch, learn and listen.

As the sun rose the fog began clearing providing a beautiful misty sunrise scene, enhanced by the lone zebra crossing the meadow.Dylan Hargreaves - A herd of wildebeest stretches as far as the eye can see across the Northern Serengeti. Ubuntu Camp, Serengeti, Tanzania.Jeremy Hearne - During our ‘Ultimate Namibian Safari’, this is a shot of members of our group climbing the dunes at Sossusvlei at sunrise.

It was simply a spectacular ride as we floated above the animals.Bill Harker - Every day on safari is an adventure and unexpected surprises at every turn, such as these lionesses in this spectacular tree. Picture perfect! Amboseli, Kenya.Mary Lippold - Victoria Falls, taken on the Zambian side of the waterfall, shows only a small portion of the width and magnificence of this fantastic sight. Walking along the entire width of the falls is an experience not to be missed.
Candace Premo - The iconic scene of the Serengeti, this cheetah was the first animal we saw driving into the Serengeti. If I saw just this (luckily I saw so much more) I could have gone home happy!Greg Illes - Just after sunrise, wind-riffled sand at Sossusvlei dunes shows off its art. Later in the day when we drove by again, the entire scene was nearly invisible, all shadows having departed.JP Norvell - Sunset in the Maasai Mara, a lone thorn tree is silhouetted by the orange-colored sun.

The young were buffered by the adults.
