The gnu, or wildebeest, is in fact a large antelope. A fully grown gnu can reach 1.27–1.47 m at the shoulder and weigh 120–270 kg. They inhabit the plains and open woodlands of Africa. The photos below are from my trips to Kenya and Botswana.
In Kenya, I was lucky enough to catch the end of the Great Migration in the Masai Mara – gnus galore!
In Botswana, the numbers were much smaller, but they are always wonderful to see.
