We stayed at Giraffe Manor at the beginning of our honeymoon and it was absolutely magical. Even if there were no giraffes, the property would be worth visiting - it’s a gorgeous manor with fantastic food and the most incredible staff. Edmund in particular went out of his way to make sure that we had an unforgettable honeymoon visit - he helped us take all the best pictures, ensured we had a great table for breakfast, and even summoned one of the giraffes to our window for a wake up call. Everyone was extremely welcoming - Edgar and Frances made us feel like we were family as soon as we arrived. And the giraffes are absolutely incredible, beautiful, gentle creatures - and because GM is so small, every guest gets plenty of interaction with them. The only slight downside for our stay was the bedroom - it was very warm at night, without AC - and we didn’t feel comfortable leaving the window open because of the mosquitoes (although there are nets on the bed to protect you). Really though, that was such a minor thing - I wholeheartedly recommend a stay here! It truly is the most magical experience.

The entire stay was magical. The staff was incredibly attentive, the decor was perfect, food was delicious, and of course the interaction with the giraffes was what dreams are made of. I hope to get back there soon because we just could not get enough of the property and that ability to live and roam freely with the giraffe family.

I had hoped to feed a couple of giraffes and get a few good photos. However, the opportunities were endless! Call the dress turn out to be remarkably gentle and eager to nibble on their food as long as you want to feed them. The staff were consistently helpful and considerate. Likewise, the were delighted to be there, so the atmosphere was always pleasant.

About
Description
Giraffe Manor is owned by The Safari Collection and is an exclusive boutique hotel, set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi. As one of Nairobi’s More most iconic buildings, Giraffe Manor has extraordinary appeal, that harks back to the 1930s when European visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris. With its stately facade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, guests often remark that it’s like walking into the film Out of Africa: indeed, one of its twelve rooms is named after the author Karen Blixen. However, the most fascinating thing about Giraffe Manor is its herd of resident Rothschild giraffe who may visit morning and evening, sometimes poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary. Giraffe Manor can be booked for the night or as part of a complete tailor-made safari with The Safari Collection. Less
