Giraffes on the Serengeti and elsewhere

Giraffes were often seen in the distance. Sometimes they were standing there doing nothing, others were bent down grazing or reaching up into trees as they are designed to do.

Head and body with beautiful pattern (not the same giraffe):

And then there was this pair found in a shop at the Cultural Center. Many shops also had carved ones some of which were almost life size - not too convenient for carry-on luggage in the plane back.
