Managing director and lead driver, Simon Zacharia spent three days in the Serengeti following the wildebeest migration, during his safari he spotted a small group of wildebeest in the East Namiri Plains and the Barafu Kopjes. 

On the last day of his safari, he drove to the Ndutu area and captured a very large group enjoying the lush green grass. The Ndutu area is the best place to spot the herds, he says.

Photographer Roshni Lodhia's Serengeti experience: 

Roshni Lodhia was in the Mara region of the Serengeti National Park. It was around 5:30pm and she was hoping to catch the sunset over the beautifully built Mara River Post Lodge perched on a hilltop.

So, she hopped into the 4-wheel-drive to the bottom of the hill, only to see this looming cloud cover approaching their way. The safari driver stopped the vehicle and she scrambled to the roof to get this image.

Within a 10-minute time frame, she watched the storm sweep over them as if in a movie scene. When it reached them, there was no drizzle or hint of rain as a warning - it down-right poured with lollipop-sized hailstones hitting the windows.

Their vehicle was shaking from side to side and there was absolutely no visibility beyond the walls of the car. It was a crazy and once-in-a-lifetime experience, she says.
