Adoptee Updates:

What's new in Tima's world?

Tima, aka EHF084, is a female giraffe who lives on the Etosha Heights Private Reserve adjacent to the famous Etosha National Park in Namibia. Tima means 'mother' in the local Damara language and the name is a tribute to her attentive, caring and vigilant nature as a mum. Tima is an older cow and has likely raised many calves including her most recent addition Axaros (pronounced 'Acharos', which means 'girl child'). Bearing some claw scares on her left rump, suggesting she may have survived a lion attack, Tima is easy to identify.
All our giraffe adoptees live wild and free in the vast expanses of northwest Namibia.
