My fiancee proposed while having the most romantic candle lit dinner in this truly unique and magical place. The entire staff, starting from the GM, was aware of it and all together made an extra effort to make it unforgettable. The service is simply perfect, the staff extremely kind always with a smile and a gentle word. The food was...

My wife and I spent one night at Giraffe Manor on our honeymoon between doing a safari and spending a week in the Seychelles. We don't say this lightly - it was hands-down the best hotel experience we have ever had. And we've been fortunate - we have stayed at the beautiful Oberoi Resorts throughout India, the Rosewood in London,...

Thank you for taking the time to put this review together. As you mention we are situated right in the center of the Karengata experience here in Nairobi and fortunate to be so close to the DSWT. All wonderful places to visit while to base yourself here and look after the Giraffe! Hope to see you here again soon!

Here is where we started our Africa experience and its a amazing place. We had one of the two available suites. The Hatton Finch suite. Every morn and every evening the giraffes come to visit and you get to feed them. The staff is amazing. Grate food. Clean. I will definetally go back. One of my favorite places. We stay...

My partner and I couldn't get enough of feeding "our" giraffe, Kelly, whether over afternoon cocktails, from the balcony of our room at sunrise or over breakfast! The hotel manager, Nick, had indicated that we should just stop feeding them whenever we felt like it because we were sure to get bored before the giraffes did but that proved to...
