I spent hours walking through the bush trying to spot a giraffe. Some days I would get up before sunrise and walk around the Save Conservancy to try and spot them on the morning commute. We took game drives throughout the day and tiptoed around the watering holes but still, no giraffes spotted.
Then one day we were driving back from town and boom! Smack in the middle of the road were almost a dozen giraffe just going about their day. All that time spent following giraffe footprints led to nowhere and now, with a beer in hand in the late afternoon, we stumble upon a whole heard. What a magnificent creature with a sort of magical aura about them. Just when you least expect it.
