Magical is the only way to describe this spot. Two nights between a working visit and a safari visit were perfect in EVERY way. The accommodations, food, service and support staff were impeccable. Try to plan a day there with no outings. The opportunities for outings are wonderful, too. But just enjoying the surroundings are all you will need. We... More

We stayed at Giraffe Manor for one night before starting a 10 day safari around Kenya. It was such an amazing start! We had seen photos and were so excited about seeing the giraffes, but nothing prepares you for the close encounters with the giraffes. We even got kisses! What a unique and surreal experience. The property was beautiful, it... More

My family of four visited the Manor for one night in July of 2014...I am VERY late writing this review. My husband and I were guests, together with our 21 year old son and 18 year old daughter...our visit wrapped up a 15 day trip to Africa which included missions work in Mbita and three days on safari at Maasai...

We spent one night in a suite. The service was spectacular, and the room amazing. The told us we could go to the giraffe center for free. I didn't think it would be that great - but it was. They have a 6 month old baby. A staff member took us on a walk through the park to see him... More

We spent one night at Giraffe Manor before we went on to visit the Masai Mara. We had three rooms and they were all comfortable, well decorated and down right incredible. As wonderful as the rooms were, the food was even better and the staff was just incredible. Every possible need was met immediately. And I haven't even gotten to... More

We spent two night at the Giraffe Manor. It was extraordinary in all regards. The staff was incredible and the food excellent. The most outstanding part is, of course, the giraffes. The pictures that you see on the internet are not staged marketing photos, they are the reality. The giraffes really have breakfast with you and you can feed them... More

We spent two nights here in 2012; one pre-safari and one post. Gorgeous rooms, warm, devoted staff, great food. Like visiting friends. The fact that the herd of endangered Rothschild giraffes put their beautiful heads into your windows--and sometimes your breakfast--adds to the wonderful ambience. What a wonderful place to rest from your travels before heading into the bush!
