Nicely played collective noun peeps. Love that one… Giraffe are always kind of hard to photograph they are soo tall and they rarely do anything terribly interesting. They are soo graceful and have huge eyelashes and they are often referred to as the “super model” of the bush.
These giraffe images were taken while on safari in Botswana, I’m pretty sure all of them were taken in Moremi Game Reserve. My giraffe images can be found in my portfolio…HERE.
In case you were curious:
- A just born giraffe measures around six (6) feet in height.

- Giraffe’s kick is so strong that it can also kill a lion.
- The heart of the giraffe weighs 24 pounds and is two feet in length.
