Giraffe Manor revisited

On December 23rd, I posted a picture of Stanley & Eva at breakfast…with a giraffe eating at the opposite side of the table. I have had some questions asked by people who thought I might have created that in Photoshop. Now I admit that sometimes I take liberties with reality in my photos, but this was real. So I decided it was time to revisit Giraffe Manor and Karen, Kenya and add a few images. So here are some other shots of the giraffes and warthogs there. The giraffes were used to being hand fed and the windows were always left open. They even had to stop putting flowers in the vase as the giraffes were eating them right off the tables.

The warthogs were also fed by everyone at the hotel. But while it was possible to feed the giraffes by putting the food right on their tongues we simple threw it down for the warthogs. They would get down on their front knees and vacuum it up as quick as we threw it down.
