Extremely Endangered Rothschild's Giraffe Full Frontal In The Wild
Photo By Tristan Limpo

  • Title: Extremely Endangered Rothschild's Giraffe Full Frontal In The Wild
  • State/Province/Region:
  • Country: Kenya
  • Nearest Area: Lambwe Valley
  • Nearest Town: Homa Bay
  • Brief Directions: Fly to Nairobi, Kenya... if you are coming from Washington State like me, this will take you a few days, a stopover in New York, and another somewhere in Europe. From there you will take a 7 hour bus ride to Kisumu over rutted dirt roads, before finally taking a boda-boda or tuk-tuk the last stretch out to Dunga. There you will hang out at an orphanage for a month or so before taking a bus from Kisumu to Homa Bay, than hiring a taxi to drive you to and through the park. There's probably a quicker way, but that's my route!
  • Description: The Rothschild's Giraffe is one of the most endangered subspecies of Giraffe, existing in only a few national parks. Ruma National Park in the Lambwe Valley is one of the smallest in Kenya, and is seldom visited by tourists. This one was so unafraid that I had to switch to wide angle to get him all into the frame. Beautiful creatures, they have incredibly liquid eyes with long eyelashes, and move with a surprising grace.
  • Gear: Nikon D70s, Nikkor 18-70mm dx, Adobe Camera Raw
