Giraffe are unusual, prehistoric-looking animals and are prolific at Kariega Game Reserve. Giraffe are loved by our safari guests, particularly those who are interested in photographic safaris. Giraffe are regularly submitted by guests in our annual Kariega Facebook Photographic Competition, and in 2016 they were the subject of the winning photograph.

Giraffe are Popular Photographic Safari Subjects

Brendon Jennings, a field guide at Kariega Game Reserve, has a particular affinity to these gentle giants and is an avid and excellent photographer.
