Some sources combine Kordofan and West African giraffes, Nubian and Rothschild's giraffes, and Angolan and Southern African giraffes, respectively, into single subspecies. Four other subspecies have been described, but are not widely agreed upon: Cape giraffe (G.c. capensis), Lado giraffe (G.c. cottoni), Congo giraffe (G.c. congoensis), and Transvaal giraffe (G.c. wardi).
