We saw three giraffe (giraffes?) including this one which was seated. Giraffes apparently have quite a problem with their high blood pressure - it is necessary to get blood all the way up to their brains but if they lay down they are in real trouble! The most horizonal they get is this - seated. The bunch we saw were about 10 meters from the truck. There are something like 72 different animals on this reserve - we saw only a handful because the grass is so tall this time of year - nearly 2 meters tall. The grasses are usually burned in late May/June at the start of 'safari season.' This facilitates better wildlife viewing but it is these prescribed burns that prevent hot-fast fires from occurring later in the season.
Last but not least, the brothers, being knuckleheads.
