Southern Africa Travel Guide

Giraffes


No, the tallest land mammal in the world isn’t one of the Big Five. Still the gracious giraffe is one of Africa’s most cherished animals. They stand over 5 meters (around 17 feet) tall and weigh about 1500 kilograms (3400 pounds). Amazingly, like us humans and our fellow mammals, the giraffe only has seven vertebrae. Their remarkable circulatory system prevents a deadly blood flow to the brain while they bend over to drink. Females are smaller and often have a hairy tuft on top of their horns.

TESTIMONIAL

Normally I like to travel independently but with the amount of travel involved this way you get to see a lot, without the hassle of organizing it yourself. I can recommend the trip to anybody and already told some friends. In Holland we have various tour operators offer this trip as well. However...
