Giraffe

Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis) – an African artiodactyl mammal from the family Giraffidae, the tallest land animal and largest ruminant living in modern times. Usually inhabits the savannah, grasslands, and open wooded north-eastern Kenya, southern Ethiopia, and Somalia.

Acacia leaves, growing at a height inaccessible to most other herbivores, constitute the main source of food for the giraffes.

They can attain a height of up to 6 m, males weigh approx. 1600 kg, females 830 kg.

Did you know that giraffes were once thought to be a cross between a camel and a leopard?

Our herd on the Savannah run are: alpha male, that is Rafiki, and females, Imara, Shani, and Nala usually also accompanied by the young. The Chapman zebra, Hartebeest kamas, and ostriches live on the same run.
