Giraffe Manor

Deluxe An excellent hotel, rooms with air-conditioning, one or more restaurants that serve very good food, and that feature a swimming pool, bars, lounges, room service — all the amenities of a four- or five-star international hotel.

Giraffe Manor is a delightful family lodge situated outside of Nairobi. The manor is known for its Rothschild’s giraffes, which often stick their heads through the windows of the lodge to greet you. Each of the twelve luxury rooms offers en suite facilities and sumptuous surroundings. The rooms are divided evenly between the refurbished main Manor House and the newly constructed Garden Manor. Enjoy evening cocktails in front of the fireplace before a delicious gourmet dinner. Complimentary activities include walking in the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW) Sanctuary or visiting local workshops such as Marula Studios and Kazuri Beads.

Traveler Feedback

Wow! Such a fabulous trip. We were very well taken care of throughout our 2 weeks. Thank you for your excellent planning! Overall we had a great experience - there are just a few things I would do differently. 

The Giraffe Manor was unbelievable - having the giraffes come to our window in the morning and then poke their heads in at breakfast was incredible. The Manor itself is beautiful and the service and food were really good. But there is not a lot do aside from interacting with the giraffes a few times a day. The Karen Blixen Museum was nice and we enjoyed the elephant nursery but those two activities took only half a day. The guide and driver were excellent. It was my idea to spend three nights there and it was one too many. We had one day with nothing to do. So my feedback is that 2 nights (one day) at the Giraffe Manor is just right.

Then off to Giraffe Manor. To be honest, I thought it might be a bit cheesy, but I was so wrong. We had such a delightful time, feeding and kissing the giraffes. It is amazing to see those beautiful animals up close and personal! Meeting and eating with the other guests was also great fun, sharing experiences and looking forward to those yet to come. It is truly a unique place, and we loved that is small and so personal. We also visited the Giraffe Center.
