We came across these wonderful giraffes in Serengeti National Park in Tanzania. The baby giraffe is only few minutes old and doesn’t yet feel very comfortable standing on his feet. His mother tried to bring him away from watching us to a safer place, although he seemed to hesitate between her and the tree nearby, perhaps taking it for his alternative mother. Not all baby giraffes are so lucky though – many of them do not survive falling from the mother’s womb to the ground.

Location: Serengeti, Tanzania
