Here’s a little zigzag about the zebra crossing! A group of tourists were left stunned when their safari tour was organized – by a herd of giraffes walking down the street. Sonali Dudhane, 43, was traveling to Maasai Mara, Kenya when she spotted a large group grazing in the distance. The tourists got off the bus and started taking pictures of African wildlife. Sonali, from Lucknow in Upper Pradesh, India, said her car stopped when the giraffe was spotted.
Only then emerged from the brush landscape moments after her driver said they would. She said: “We watched Giraffes in the bush for almost 20 minutes. ‘Then our driver told us to get in the car and he predicted that the herd would cross the road. ‘We got to witness this amazing moment and be able to capture the moment on camera. ‘I’ve never seen this large herd before, I’m trying to count through my viewfinder.’
Giraffes, the tallest land animals, can reach speeds of up to 37mph. Living on the savanna or in the open forest, no two giraffes have the same spots. Their conservation status is listed as ‘vulnerable’. The whole herd of cows then emerged from the brush and crossed the road while everyone watched in amazement. “We watched the giraffes in the bushes for almost 20 minutes,” said Sonali. “We had to witness this amazing moment and be able to capture the moment on camera.”
“I’ve never seen this large herd before, I’m trying to count through my viewfinder.” Despite the slow speed with which these giraffes crossed the road. They are actually quite fast and can reach speeds of up to 37mph. Giraffe spots are like our fingerprints, each fingerprint is unique and no two giraffes have the exact same pattern.
