Thanks to Jill S. we welcome the first elephants in our reserve. Zebras, Rhinos and Hippos may follow soon. Oh, and let's not forget the birds who play an important role in our ecological balance!

I speak English!





Giraffes grow up to 19 ft - 5,8 m - tall, can weigh up to 1.7 tons and can run up to 40km/h. Grown up they are approximately six times the size of lions. Usually they are silent and gentle animals. Adult giraffes can easily smash a lion's head by kicking it with their hind legs, nevertheless it happens that they get attacked . Take your time and watch this interesting 45 min English documentary with Spanish subtitles on lions and giraffes in Tanzania:
