Getting some great photos of the Giraffes was easy because they were in a flat area where the road made a long and sweeping 'S' curve. As our truck rounded the final part of the curve, the Giraffes were standing very close to us and their beauty caused quite a stir among us admiring passengers.
Check theClose-up of the photo for a better look at the details of this beautiful animal.
You can see that they all have horns. Both sexes have two or four short, blunt, skin-covered horns. The markings of the Giraffe are convenient camouflage, making it harder to see in the sun dappled shadows of trees. Take a good look and you will see each one has different markings.
