My only regret was that my stay was too short. Definitely worth a 2 night stay at least. We had the room called "Betty" which is the room top left on the photo above and has a balcony with a great view of the gardens and the giraffes when they come to visit. The room had a four poster bed... More

We visited Giraffe Manor en route to Madagascar. The accommodations were outstanding. Our "giraffe encounters" were amazing. The staff arranged for our mini safari--a driver and guide to visit Nairobi National Park. We saw lots of wildlife there, including a pride of three adult and six lion cubs. In addition we visited the Baby Elephant Rescue site which was great... More

When we arrived at Giraffe Manor after 30 hours of travel we were met by the staff with two glasses of refreshing lemonade. Although we arrived late they insisted on serving us dinner which was delicious. We then enjoyed a good night's sleep in the well appointed room. First item on our agenda the next morning was to visit with... More

This was my 2nd time staying at Giraffe Manor and it is truly a unique experience with unbelievable service. Last time we drove out we said we would stay again and this time made it two nights. The giraffes are amazing, being woken up with them wanting to be feed and sitting having breakfast with them poking their heads in... More

This is a place where you will want to come back every time you are in Nairobi, you will have ample time seeing this tallest mammal on land at close range and you will even be suppressed they are not afraid of humans. As you feed them the leaves or perets you will feel the tranquility of been close to... More

This was a dream experience. From the moment of arrival to the point of departure 24 hours later, it was living the dream. Yes, the location is great, the food excellent and the service terrific, but the giraffes are the main attraction and don't disappoint. The bedrooms are varied in terms of size and facilities, but who cares when a... More

We stayed for 2 nights as a family, and didn't ever want to leave. The service is amazing - really gorgeous people attending to our every need (from hot water bottles at night to pellets of giraffe food on the breakfast table.....) - but the main attraction is giraffes coming right up to you for food and kisses. The 8... More

We stayed for one night on our way to the Masai Mara. The Manor itself is charming our rooms were in the main house and one had a balcony above the breakfast room so we could feed the giraffes from our room. There was also an open fire which was lit in the evening which was lovely as it was... More

It is a lovely manor house on beautiful grounds. We stayed in a room called "jock" and the lock didn't work on the door. The room is very nice with a fireplace and large bathroom with updated rain shower. The "king" bed is actually two twins pushed together and hard as a rock. The all inclusive alcohol and dinner were... More

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
