These giraffe all lined near the watering hole at the Ol Pejeta tented camp.  The adult male was keeping the three females close to him as a younger male had also made his way to the watering hole and was interested in the females, but it wasn’t reciprocated.  Their are three species of giraffe in Kenya, with the other two being the Maasai and the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe which is pretty much isolated to Lake Nakuru National Park in Kenya.  It is estimated that giraffes sleep about 45 minutes a day and when a giraffe is born it falls about six feet to the ground!
