It's official! We have a brand new winner in our annual #IncredibleAfrica15 Photo Contest for 2015. Once again we were privileged to feature many stunning photos that capture the spirit of the great African continent, and this year we left it entirely up to our readers to vote for the particular photo that they believe epitomizes the unique ambiance of Africa.
It was a nail-bitingly close contest down to the last minute, and in the final days of voting the two top photos were virtually neck-and-neck after every new vote was tallied. Our congratulations go to Malene Schroder, our winning photographer who shot a very endearing photo of a hugely mischievous-looking Mountain Gorilla in Uganda, entitled "The Troublemaker".
Malene has won a wonderful 5-Day/4-Night safari to Samburu and Ol-Pejeta for two, and will have the chance to make many more wonderful Safari memories in two amazing wildlife locations. Both reserves offer a great Big Five safari experience and she will also get the chance to see endangered Rhino at Ol Pejeta and the interesting Northern Five in Samburu.
We're willing to bet that we will be seeing more brilliant entries from this enthusiastic photographer and wildlife-lover next year!
We hope to bring you more feedback on our winner in the near future. In the meantime, we encourage all our readers to get out there and start snapping – who knows? – you could already be on your way to becoming our next winner.
