The Masai Giraffe (Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchii) was named in honour of Herr von Tippelskirch, a member of a German Scientific expedition in East Africa in 1896.
Tippelskirch brought back the skin of a female Masai Giraffe from near Lake Eyasi in the Serengeti. The species was then formally named as Giraffa camelopardalis tippelskirchii in 1898.
