The Angolan giraffe (Giraffa giraffa angolensis), also known as Namibian giraffe, is a subspecies of Southern giraffe that is found in northern Namibia, south-western Zambia, Botswana, and western Zimbabwe. A 2009 genetic study on this subspecies suggests the northern Namib Desert and Etosha National Park populations form a separate subspecies.
This subspecies has large brown blotches with edges that are either somewhat notched or have angular extensions. The spotting pattern extends throughout the legs but not the upper part of the face. The neck and rump patches tend to be fairly small. The subspecies also has a white ear patch.
Approximately 13,000 animals are estimated to remain in the wild; and about 20 are kept in zoos.
