A small and exclusive hotel ranked up there with the best in Africa, Giraffe Manor is famed for its luxurious accommodation, friendly staff, one of Nairobi's finest kitchens and of course, let us not forget the main attractions, those rare Rothschild Giraffes.
The only place on planet Earth where one can interact, feed and photograph giraffes as they stick their heads through the front door and windows over breakfast tables.
Note; should one be interested in spending a few nights here, please look at booking well in advance. When we say Giraffe Manor is popular, we mean it.
On a side note, Giraffe Manor is one of the very few properties on the African continent that is included in a whole host of "bucket list" experiences. To spend a night or two here is to be spoilt rotten.
All rooms and suites offer completely different decor and style, all the while reflecting the glamour and charm of a luxurious safari ara. Six accommodation options are available in the main 'Manor House', while the other six accommodation options are located with the 'Garden Manor'.
All rooms and suites are luxurious by nature with a small lounge area, comfortable beds and glamorous en-suite 'Art Deco' bathrooms.

High tea on the lawns in front of the manor house while resident giraffes and warthogs forage nearby is an activity most certainly not to be missed.
