Best place to see giraffes in wild

Where is the best place to see giraffes in Africa (Botswana, Kenya?, etc.?) and still withing decent driving distance of Victoria Falls?

Try either Hwange (south of Vic Falls in Zimabawe), or go across the border into Chobe in Botswana. If you'd like more information, please e-mail me.

I saw a lot of giraffes at Matetsi Game Lodge, about 35 miles outside of Victoria Falls. Matetsi has a great location right on the mighty Zambezi River and pretty nice accomodations, although I don't know if its worthy of the price tag ($660 - 800 for a double).
I went just after the elections this year and it was not a very good time to be in Zimbabwe. But, due to the circumstances I was able to get in for half price, which seemed about right. The rangers were excellent but we didn't have a tracker the whole time and never even saw a lion and only once in three days saw a leopard. There were plenty of giraffes and elephants and being on the Zambezi River, we even had the pleasure of seeing hippos, crocodiles and some very exotic birds (ever see a "Jesus bird", a bird that literally walks on water???). I got some amazing photographs both at Matetsi and Singita in South Africa.
