‘Your Shot’ Winner: Mara River, Tanzania

The latest winning entry in our ‘Your Shot’ photo competition, captured in Tanzania by Jill Beaumont.

This photo was taken in Tanzania. Thousands of wildebeest were crossing the Mara River as part of their annual migration.

There are crocodiles in the river waiting to prey on them; we had to wait for three hours as they walked up and down the bank before one crossed and then they all followed.
