 Gondwana Game Reserve, the Perfect Cape Town Safari Break introduces another signature species – Giraffe

Gondwana Game Reserve welcomes the world’s tallest land mammal to the 11,000 hectare reserve.

The memorable release of giraffe took placein May in the reserve’s awe inspiring Nauga Valley after their short journey from the Eastern Cape.

The Giraffe gracefully disembarked from the transport truck and surveyed their new surroundings with a sense of ownership. They briefly glared at the small silent audience of humans and moved on against the backdrop of the Langeberg Mountains.

The young bull then led his ladies into the distance… The addition of giraffe to the Gondwana family will enhance the wildlife experience and supplement to the diversity of game species which includes Desert Black Rhino, eland, kudu, lion, Cape Mountain Zebra and cheetah among many others.

The Gondwana Guides are all on the hunt to be the first to tick off giraffe!

Let the games begin….
