This place is like being in a dream! Although it is pricy, it's really worth it. Where else can you go and have a giraffe look in your bedroom window. We were treated like royalty from the time we arrived until the time we left. My husband still talks about how relaxing the afternoon was. We just sat overlooking the...

This is a dream hotel. The tame giraffes join the guests each day for breakfast and afternoon tea. If you wish, you can feed them food pellets. The friendly warthogs also come to visit. Breakfast meals are with you and your travel partner, but dinners are communal. Food is terrific and we had some dietary restrictions which they gladly accommodated.

Giraffe manor is so much more than an amazing hotel with wonderful staff and service. It is one of the greatest experiences that I have ever have.

We arrived around 7am on a Monday morning after flying in from London and were worried that the giraffes might have already gone and had full bellies, but we really didn't need to worry. As Edgar met us from the car and took us around the corner, we saw our first giraffe! What an amazing sight. As we had early...

Our weary group of seven, family and friends, arrived in Nairobi after two weeks on safari in Tanzania & gorilla trekking in Rwanda. We were whisked to Giraffe Manor from the airport and all felt as though we had been transported to another world.
