Cycle of life

Girafe closeup

Giraffes were abundant during our stay at the Mohlabetsi Safari Lodge, they have an interesting role in the cycle of life. They primarily feed on vegetation and co-exist in packs, you seldom find one alone and if you do then its gone stray from the group.


They also rely on these birds to eat some form of insects of their skin, so in a way they are source of food for these birds.

However they could also end up as a meal to a lion or crocodile if they are not careful.

I guess every thing has its unique role in the cycle of life…
