October 2021 Baby Giraffe

On October 6th, Safari West welcomed a brand new baby giraffe born here on the Sonoma Serengeti. This 6-foot plus youngster is the son of Mother Nikki and Father Kubwa and is ready to meet his fans! There’s just one problem. He needs a name!

Always one of the most famous and recognizable of Africa’s mammals, the lovely giraffe has recently become a conservation issue as well. Although most people still don’t know it, giraffes have sadly found themselves on the Endangered Species List! More than ever before, we need to focus attention on the study and conservation of this unique species. The giraffes at Safari West have served as ambassadors for their species for decades and continue to inspire and educate tens of thousands of human visitors every year. We look forward to this newest arrival continuing the tradition with the next generation of conservationists.
