To my surprise there was a tame giraffe right outside the cottage and it was so friendly and keen to be patted and stroked. I spent about half an hour stroking it's forehead like you would a horse, and it loved it and kept coming back for more. Such a wonderful animal! It was a real honour to be able to meet such a large "wild" animal up close and personal.

|Good Morning Mr Giraffe|
|The cottage I ended up in - away from all the noise and all night music|
|Such a majestic beast - made me feel really close to the wild|
|Closest I got to getting the whole giraffe in one picture up close!|
|That long neck can move very fast|
|Step back and get it all in|
|Not easy to get it all into the lens up close|
|Such a friendly giraffe|
