The Giraffe is not officially part of the African Big 5. But I believe seeing one live in the wild clearly leaves an impression just as memorable as any of the Big 5. A safari is not the same without seeing this magnificent mammal.
On that day, I even captured a few younger Giraffes on film (or digital) as the animal (male) ages its spots get darker (and of course its neck gets longer)
Stay adventurous, Craig
