    I love giraffes, too! We went to a safari park last year and got to feed giraffes. I’m not a big fan of zoos in general, but it was still pretty cool and they do get to roam around a bit. I had never been so close to one before.

    I like the first photo because the giraffe is staring you down. I love their pattern, because nothing else resembles it. They are majestically gentle, and always interesting. Thank you for sharing your photos from Kenya, and happy WW!

    Oh wow, everyone loves giraffes! Thank you all for stopping by and commenting.

    The top giraffe was staring us down. It was basically standing in the ‘back garden’ of the tent that we were staying in, just feet from where we were. It was such a shock to come out of the tent on our first day and see it there.

    Nothing quite looks or moves likes a giraffe and they are surprisingly fast too. They cover a lot of ground without looking like they are moving much at all. They have a massive impact on the way Kenya looks, the tree behind the first giraffe looks that way because it’s only got green growth left above the height that the giraffes can reach to eat.

    Fantastic photos. I would love to visit Kenya one day and see this for myself. For now, Happy Wordless Wednesday! 🙂

    they’re just so elegant with their height and impossibly long necks, aren’t they? one of the giraffe at our zoo just had a baby (foal? i’m not sure what baby giraffe are called…?) anyway… just had a baby a couple of weeks ago. i watched the birth video on the evening news. i can’t believe they don’t break their necks (or other bones) falling so far to the ground! amazing!
