Giraffe Manor

Explore Kenya

Start your safari experience early with a stay at the exclusive Giraffe Manor in Nairobi. Enjoy the great experience of sharing the grounds with Rothschild giraffes that will often appear at upstairs windows, curiously watching the goings on inside the hotel and will join you at the breakfast table. The 140 acre grounds are also home to families of warthog, bushbuck and other species of African mammals and birds, which makes it a great start to any trip to Kenya for guests of all ages. The manor house is based on a Scottish hunting lodge giving a beautiful colonial feel to your stay and making this historical and unique property all the more special.

The hotel's 10 rooms are split across the main house and the Garden Manor, with the same pervading sense of old world class and charm taking hold throughout. Giraffe interaction isn't quite as strong in the Garden Manor as in the main house, but the hint of contemporary decor against the more traditional styling in the luxury rooms, the fashionable use of skylights in the bathrooms and the presence of a large family suite, more than makes up for it. In the main house the two tier Karen Blixen room is a major attraction, again usually used for families, the room is very large and extremely comfortable. Naturally, giraffe interaction is the main reason for staying here, that aside the property is ideal for relaxing and an excellent place to stay before moving on to a safari.

While not a true "wild" experience, it was definitely unique. I wouldn't do it again, unless my grown kids want the experience, but it was a fine one time start.
