Heatwave hits Giraffes

The unexpected heatwave that hit the Cape was unbelievable! Plettenberg Bay Game Reserve's grass became very dry with the hot weather the last two months. 
 The giraffes got some extra nourishment with lucern that we placed high up for them. They were regularly sighted near the shed for shade. The visitors really admired the sight of the tall necked animals.

 The sky finally became dark on 23 January and some drops of rain arrived. The smell of the rain was refreshing like nothing on earth.
