Amy, this is the most informative article about giraffes I have ever read. I have to agree with you that watching these magnificently different creatures automatically clears out our minds and allows us to stay present with unbelievable beauty.

Loved the information about giraffes. I have also always thought they are amazing creatures.

Amy, thank you for a very interesting, informative write-up. I loved watching the Giraffes while there at Londolozi — they’re so graceful and beautiful and do having a calming effect.

Great facts Amy! Love your bogs. I feel a kinship with these long-legged lovelies though I am not as graceful..but also thankful my tongue is smaller and not bluish/black.

How much blood does a giraffe have.

What an absolutely gorgeous collection of photographs! I particularly love that first video of two young males necking.

I actually wrote a similar blog post incorporating all the fun facts that I learnt about giraffes whilst on my trip around Botswana over December. Please feel free to check it out! I have to say – the fact that the collective term for group of giraffes is termed a tower when stationary, but a journey when on the move, has to be one of my favourite parts of the English language!

I actually wrote a fun blog post about giraffes, based on my findings from my recent trip to Botswana in December. I’d absolutely adore it if you were to check it out! paigingdoctor.com/giraffe-ic-park/


Nice article about the giraffe. How accurate is the part about lions being decapitated? I can find any references to that.

Hi Will. I have not seen it myself but have read a number of reports that it’s possible. The kick would need to be incredibly well placed by the giraffe but it is in fact powerful enough.
