More than just a luxury hotel in Nairobi, Giraffe Manor offers a unique experience with its own resident giraffes. Imagine unwinding in a stately manor from a bygone era, surrounded by these majestic creatures while still being within reach of Nairobi's bustling city life. Meanwhile, 5-star amenities provide a lavish stay in meticulously landscapes gardens, just steps from the state-of-the-art Giraffe Centre.
At Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, dining becomes an extraordinary affair as guests enjoy sumptuous breakfasts accompanied by the gentle presence of giraffes stretching their necks through the windows, eagerly awaiting a treat of pellets. And don't miss out on the enchanting afternoon tea, offering yet another chance to interact with Giraffe Manor's iconic residents. 
While many guests are content with these unparalleled experiences, Giraffe Manor also offers opportunities for exploration beyond its grounds.
