It’s been one of my dreams to be able to travel to Africa and ride a horse galloping alongside beautiful Giraffes. It’s a long way from home and certainly costs a pretty penny.
So to get my giraffe fix, a visit to the Maryland Zoo and the Giraffe feeding station was in order. These elegant lumbering towering beasts are gentle and inquisitive.
There was a young filly giraffe that came in to enjoy the lettuce delicacies, along with her mother.
Their long tongues twisting around the lettuce to enjoy the sweetness. Munch..munch..munch.
I got to pet their soft noses and they smelled like horses. No wonder I like Giraffes so much.
I really want one now. I can see Remy running along the giraffes, laughing with glee.
Ya, beautiful as they may be I don’t think you got a yard big enough to fit one of them lol 😉
Believe me..I’ll get a yard big enough for them. Or..they can hang out at Remy’s place. 🙂
Ohh..but then I just thought of poop cleanup. LOL!
ya……..that one you are on your own 😛
I find giraffes very appealing, too. Your photos really capture their beauty.
I think I could have spent all day with them. They are such gentle creatures, and beautiful!!
How absolutely GORGEOUS! 🙂
Thanks Joanne! Hard to improve on mother nature’s perfection. 🙂
Maybe go for a giraffe ride! Jk!🐆
Now I’m trying to figure out how to rig a saddle onto a giraffe that won’t make me slide off. LOL ! Don’t think I wouldn’t try.
If you know the way and avoid the tourist traps Africa is relatively inexpensive to travel through …. In case of South Africa: the real south African journey begins >100 km beyond Cape Town 😉
Now I’m sure you could really arrange an amazing journey in Africa for me. I’m looking for 2016 to go there and really want to do the great migration in Tanzania. But have heard fabulous things of South Africa.
They are so sweet! Hope your wonderful dream will come true soon! Just let me gallop along with you!
Oh that would be wonderful Fatima! Remind me..do you ride?
I took lessons years ago and managed a trot, but wouldn’t say I can ride. Very expensive here.
