Nzuri the Giant Giraffe


I have a giant giraffe. His name is Nzuri. In Swahili, this means “beautiful” or “good”. Nzuri has a lively personality. He’s independent, mischevious and open to trying new things.

Recently, Nzuri and I had to part because I’ve moving to Fiji and airline carriers won’t accept a 5ft Giraffe as hand luggage. Sign my petition to change this. Nzuri and I said goodbye and he is now living with his foster brother David Beagle. Hopefully Dave feels better about Nzuri than he used to. (1).gif

As an ode to my giant giraffe, I have collected our precious moments together from his adoption, to his rebellious teens, to his hopeful dreams as an adult. Whip out your tissues, it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

Adoption day!

Shameless selfie with my favorite guy.

Get out of the fridge, Nzuri!

Nzuri stole my phone and took selfies.

Forgot to put on his L plates.

We’ll miss you Nzuri!
