First Place Scenery: Michael Rhine – Finding a lone wildebeest during the great migration is no easy task, but this one wandered alone onto the horizon during a sundowner on our first night in the Mara, providing a nice silhouette against the red sky.Second Place Scenery: Darlene Knott – The awe inspiring landscape of the Serengeti. We saw this tiny klipspringer, perched high atop the kopjes. What a magnificent scene, one I will never forget!Third Place Scenery: Kevin Allen – The Milky Way was bright as we walked back to our tent after dinner at Tortilis Camp Amboseli, Kenya.

After days of hiding in the clouds Kilimanjaro finally revealed itself to us.Binita Kwankin – This mother and baby rhino walked through the grass towards the woods. It cheered our hearts that the rhino in Moremi were multiplying and relaxed around people.

John Lotshaw – Hot air balloons filling up in the predawn darkness in the Serengeti.Alex Kostich – During one of our early evening sundowner breaks I noticed this pair of giraffes silhouetted against the setting sun.
