Meet some of our animals


Giraffe

The giraffe is the tallest land animal at a height of about 5 meters.

Giraffes live primarily in savanna areas of the sub-Saharan region of Africa.   Its long legs, neck, and 46 centimeters tongue allow the giraffe to reach the tender leaves of the tallest acacia trees.

A giraffe’s spots are much like human fingerprints.

No two individual giraffes have exactly the same pattern.   The age of a giraffe can be calculated from its spots, the darker the spots, the older the giraffe.   Giraffes can live up to 25 years in the wild.

8 giraffes have been born at Nofa Wildlife Park.

 

Cheetah

Accelerating from 0 to 96 km/h (60 mph) in three seconds, the cheetah is the world’s fastest land mammal.   They inhabit the grasslands of eastern, central, and southwestern Africa, as well as a small portion of Iran.

Although sometimes confused with leopards, cheetahs are distinguished by their “tear-stained” black marks that run from the corners of their eyes down the side of their nose to their mouth.   Their smaller stature and small, flat heads also set them apart.

They cannot roar, but they can purr and chirp.   Unlike most cats, they have terrible night vision, which is why they hunt during the day.

Zebra

The Grévy's zebra, also known as the imperial zebra, is the most endangered of the three species of zebra due to hunting and habitat changes.

The Grévy's zebra is found in the semi-arid grasslands of Kenya and Ethiopia.   Compared with other zebras, it is tall, has large ears, and its stripes are narrower.

Each individual has unique markings and like human fingerprints, no two are alike.

Grevy's zebras grow up to 2.74 meters, weigh up to 449 kilograms, and stand up to almost 1.68 meters at the shoulder.   On average, males are about ten percent larger than females.
