Wildebeest are also known as gnus. Click on the link to read interesting facts about this ubiquitous antelope of Africa.

A few hundred meters further along the bush became even more overgrown. I drove the car over s slight rise, when Rina shouted that there was an animal in our path. It loped across the road, onto the verge where it stopped and looked back at us.
