Rothschild's Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis rothschildi) is one of nine regional variants currently recognized as subspecies of G. camelopardalis (all giraffe subspecies interbreed wherever their distributions come together). Rothschild's Giraffe is found in southern Sudan, northern Uganda, and western Kenya. Genetic studies have suggested that it belongs to a group of "North African" subspecies.
