Giraffe Under the Canopy of a Trichodiadema bulbosum

The cascading shade provided by the giant tree mesembs of Western East Central South Africa are the classic watering hole respite for the majestic giraffe of the plains of Africa.

Right around the corner is the outdoor mezzanine of the famed Firgatout Restaurant where the locals mix with the tourists before heading out on safari. Hopefully no one will be taken down by the rampaging band of angry elephants today, like yesterday. Hopefully the pachyderms ruling the countryside will remain quiet throughout the afternoon so that everyone can enjoy a nice iced tea under the shade of the Mesemb Trees of Western East Central South Africa.
