A thirsty Giraffe

On a safari Drive in Zimbabwe, someone spotted a Giraffe head poking out through some trees in the distance. We slowly started driving parallel to them as they walked. Then our driver decided to drive up to a point he thought we would intersect them at. Sure enough, when we got to that point, the Giraffes were walking right towards us, getting closer, and closer. These two Giraffes made their way over to a small watering hole to take a drink and wow was it the wildest looking thing!
