Walking with Giraffes

Posted on Updated on

Just before sunset we went for a walk to the birdhide. Suddenly we realized we were surrounded by giraffes. Adults and younger ones were grazing peacefully on the acacia trees along the river. Then, from behind a female, this baby giraffe stepped out towards us, curiosity got the better of him. His ambilical cord hadn’t dropped yet indicating that he was only a few weeks old. His fluffy horn tuffs caught the last rays and I just had to take a picture, trying to capture the cuteness standing in front of us.
