Giraffe Manor

Start or finish your East African safari on a high with a stay at the iconic Giraffe Manor on the outskirts of Nairobi. During your stay, you will share the lush 140 acre grounds with the resident and endangered Rothschild giraffes, who will often appear at upstairs windows and even join you at the breakfast table - a truly unforgettable experience for all ages. The historical manor house is based on a Scottish hunting lodge, giving a beautiful colonial feel to your stay and making this unique property all the more special.

The hotel's 12 rooms are split across the main house and the Garden Manor, exuding the same old world charm throughout. Families will love the ultra-spacious Karen Blixen and Finch Hatton suites. All rooms come with giraffe pellets, so you will be able to feed the giraffe from your windows (except the Finch Hatton suite) before enjoying a leisurely game of croquet on the lawns or taking a short stroll to the highly informative AFEW (African Fund for Endangered Wildlife) Giraffe Centre.

Getting There

Giraffe Manor is approximately 40 minutes' drive from the international airport and only 30 minutes from Wilson Airport.

Review of Giraffe Manor

Emma Myers

Incredible experience, the room was amazing and the thoughtful touches of the roses on the bed were lovely. Aside of course from the Giraffes, the food was one of the biggest highlights - every meal was absolutely delicious and again all the staff were incredibly helpful.
