One of my most remarkable memories from my Kruger NP trip in Januay 2013 will be the closeup experience of two giraffes engaged in an intense and I have to say quite brutal fight. The males stand side-by-side, pushing and shoving to judge which is strongest but all of a sudden the wiped their long muscular necks and crashed their horn like structures on top of their heads into the sides. What a show...
