More than a hotel, Giraffe Manor is an experience

Conveniently located near to Nairobi’s international airport, Nairobi National Park, and one of the city’s chicest and leafiest neighbourhoods, Giraffe Manor has an enviable location that makes it perfect for an action-packed, tailor made holiday in Kenya. 

Giraffe Manor is the ultimate unique hotel experience

Complete with its own resident giraffes, this unique faraway place with its manor house from a bygone era offers guests the unique opportunity to relax with beautiful endangered creatures whilst being within close proximity of the city and wonderful parks and reserves. 

Enjoy lavish 5-star facilities, private forest, landscaped gardens, and a state of the art Giraffe Centre across the lawn. When the manor’s giraffes aren’t roaming the vast parkland, guests can interact with these creatures while dining. 

Giraffe Breakfast is a favourite activity with the guests, where a lavish and fresh breakfast is accompanied by a bowl of pellets for the giraffes. 

Reaching right through the dining room windows, giraffes are keen to be fed at the breakfast table, while the staff are keen to tell the room about the story behind each giraffe. 

The manor also lays out a fantastic afternoon tea, which provides another opportunity to feed the giraffes. 

Although many guests just stay for these experiences, it is well worth heading out to the Elephant Orphanage nearby, where you can meet and feed baby elephants. 

Guests can also enjoy croquet, painting sessions, guided walks in the sanctuary and massages in the manor grounds.
