Seeing a giraffe in your dream can be quite unusual for you, since it is quite an unusual animal.
It is not the kind of animal that you can domesticate and see in an urban setting – in fact it can be considered an exotic animal that can only be found in the jungle, or in desert safaris.
The giraffe also carries a biblical symbolism, as they allude to long necks, stiff necks, and even the mention of the actual giraffe in the legend of Noah’s Ark.

What do giraffes represent in a dream?
Giraffes can carry many symbolisms in a dream, especially due to its tall stature. Here are some of the possibilities.
Symbolic of wisdom
Because of the giraffe’s height, it can easily see things that other animals will have a hard time seeing. It can see the forest when the other animals can only see the trees.
Because of this advantage, the giraffe is often thought of as a symbol of wisdom – because it can see things that others cannot, and therefore, it is able to make better decisions that can benefit it and the others that it needs to take care of.
Symbolic of arrogance
Sometimes, dreaming of a giraffe can also be symbolic of arrogance. Because it is taller than most animals, this may signify that you feel that you are better than the people around you.
This dream is telling you to be more careful of how you conduct yourself with others – many may be put off by your attitude, as you make them feel that you are so much better than them.
This dream may be reminding you to be a bit more humble, and to maybe check in with yourself – you may be choosing to measure yourself up with unstable and shallow things that say nothing about how good or worthy you really are.
A dream about a giraffe can mean that other people hold you in high regard. If you are feeling a bit down lately, or feel as if you don’t really measure up to those around you, then this dream is telling you that others actually think highly of you.
Cheer up, and try to also magnify your good points for you to understand that you have so many strengths, too.
Symbolic of hard work
Dreaming of a giraffe can also sometimes mean that you have to work hard in order to achieve your goals.
Maybe this is a time for you to realign your priorities and really be true to yourself regarding what you want to do with your life. Often, you don’t really need to do much in order to become happy.
Maybe it is other people pressuring you to accrue to their beliefs, and this dream is the universe telling you that you do not have to acquiesce to what they want you to do.
You have your own valuation and guidance system inside of you, and you should learn to listen to that as well.
Symbolic of frustration
The height of the giraffe is seen as a grand thing, but sometimes, it can also be frustrating to be seen so easily without you having a choice in the matter.
Your dream about a giraffe can be symbolic of the frustration that you feel when you are faced with a situation that you seemingly can’t do anything about.
Others may feel that you are at an advantage, while you are particularly feeling disadvantaged with your circumstance.
Symbolic of monotony
Sometimes, dreaming of a giraffe can also symbolize the monotony that you are feeling in your life right now.
You may feel that you are not moving forward, and that you are stuck where you are and have no idea how to get out of the situation.
In this scenario, the best thing to do is to start counting your blessings – see how lucky you really are, and how much you’ve got going for you.
There are a lot of things that you can be thankful for, and the more you spot them, the more they will keep turning up in your life.
Symbolic of confidence
The tall stature of the giraffe can also be symbolic of a certain confidence that you possess, or something that you may be aspiring for.
There is a lot that can be gleaned from this insight – one is that you should continue believing in yourself in order to get to where you truly want to be.
The next is for you to not have to look to others to get what you need – often, it is all already inside of you, just waiting for your attention to it.
Common situations in which you dream of giraffes
Dream of seeing a giraffe
If you see a giraffe in your dream, it means that you are about to witness all of the blessings that you have waited and worked for in your life.
Keep working at them and keep being appreciative of what you already have, and you will soon see big manifestations come about.
Dream of a dead giraffe
This dream could symbolize disappointment, hurt, or betrayal that you will experience in your future.
It could also mean that you have some unresolved anxieties right now in your life, and you wish to find answers about them, but you seem to be at a loss as to where to find these answers.
Dream of feeding a giraffe
This dream is a good omen – it means that you are working towards worthy things in your life.
You are giving the appropriate attention to the most important things, and that you are on the right track towards making your dreams a reality.
Dream of riding a giraffe
A dream of riding a giraffe can be quite peculiar indeed. This dream could mean that you have a hidden talent and you should exploit it more and use it to your advantage in your everyday life.
It may be easy to get distracted by what already works and what you are already used to, but you may be able to unlock a power you have never known before just by giving this talent a chance. It may be able to give you more than what you could ever imagine.
Dream of killing a giraffe
This dream may be a bit violent. But it can have some positive interpretations as well.
One is that your dream of killing a giraffe may mean that you are fighting against traditional beliefs that don’t really serve you or others, and you are winning. This is definitely a good thing as you set an example of self-belief and faith to those around you.
Another is that you may be killing off something that is also outdated in you – an attitude, a conviction, a side of your personality that doesn’t really give you an advantage anymore. This is also a good thing and is a good omen for your life.
Dream of conversing with a giraffe
This dream may be a bit funny, but it could mean some beautiful things too. This dream could symbolize you trying to get to your inner wisdom, in a way that is uncomplicated and unobstructed with other people’s beliefs, dogma, and convictions.
Here, you are trying to listen to yourself, or your animal instinct, and honor it for the wisdom that it gives you, that others simply cannot. This may be harder to do in the world today, but it is a worthwhile action to take.
The more you are able to tune in to your own guidance system, the more powerful you become, and this translates to being able to manage everyday situations with more skill and grace as well.
Dream of becoming a giraffe
If in your dream, you are the giraffe, then this could mean that you have gained a certain respect from others, but it is very important to ask the question – do you have it for yourself? You will soon realize that this is really the only thing that matters.
Dream of hunting a giraffe
This dream may mean that you are searching for something that is already within your midst, or something that is already inside of you.
Again, this is a reminder to look within yourself for the answers that you need, because you can’t find it outside of that anyway, and it is futile to even try.
Dream of owning a giraffe
If in your dream, you have domesticated a giraffe and it is now part of your life as if it were your pet, then that could mean that you have found the peace you have always wanted for yourself. This is a good omen and something you should celebrate every day of your life.
Dreams about giraffes could mean a lot of things that could connect to your life and your thoughts.
As it was introduced in Noah’s Ark, the giraffe dream could also mean cooperation and harmony with others, and this is what you need to survive in this often chaotic world.
