We had always wanted to come and experience this place and had great anticipation. It's very rare in life where something lives up to exactly what you thought it would. Such is the case here. True hospitality from every member of the staff. Excellent food and of course the giraffes!!!! We also visited the giraffe center and other area attractions... More

What a wonderful experience! I was able to stay in the Jock room, which was accessible by Lynne. She came to my window for breakfast each morning. I can't say enough wonderful things about the staff, their hospitality, the food and the ambiance. It was the experience of a lifetime! I'm so glad to have the pictures and memories.

I really enjoyed Giraffe Manor and it is an experience not to be missed. It is located outside Nairobi, so if you have one night free before or after your safari, this will set you up for your African experience. The lodge is very quiet and should you wish to do other things, then it would be necessary to go... More

This place is unique. You can escape the crowds at the Giraffe center and the giraffes come to you! We were 'visited' during our afternoon tea, over dinner and again at breakfast. The accommodation is really good with spacious rooms. The food is excellent, some of the best we have enjoyed in Nairobi. The service is fantastic. I highly recommend... More

My husband travelled to Africa and Kenya in July of this year staying one night at the beautiful Giraffe Manor. The Manor house was beautiful and the hospitality and service were outstanding. On our arrival we were greeted personally by the manager and taken directly to feed the giraffes outside the main house, what an unbelievable experience, they were giants,... More

This place is amazing! The grounds are beautiful liken to a setting in England. The Manor House is stunning in every aspect. We were upgraded to the 'Helen' room as we have the same name and one of the special giraffes is named Helen also. Beautiful is all I can say - a room filled with sunlight. In the morning... More

Arrived in Nairobi and was taken to this special location, booked specifically to see giraffes.The giraffes great you when arriving and first thing in the morning stick their head in the bathroom window for their treat. Exceptional dining, (with the giraffes during breakfast) friendly staff, professional service. Big fireplaces and pre dinner drinks and appetisers create a warm and welcoming... More

My friend and I were privileged to get the opportunity to have afternoon tea here during our short stay in Nairobi. We arrived slightly early and they were very welcoming and encouraged us to use the full facilities while we were there. We also had a private tour around the giraffe centre. As for the afternoon tea, it was nothing... More

We had seen this place on a documentary a few years ago and promised ourselves we'd go someday. We couldn't be happier that we went this October. We received a warm welcome by the manager and then ate a fantastic lunch outside next to some warthogs ("Pumbaas"). The giraffes usually aren't around the house during mid-day. Our first night was...

I have been wanting to stay at Giraffe Manor for several years and finally got the chance in February, 2014. Yes, it is very expensive - but it's not just a hotel. It has the requisite lovely manor house, beautiful grounds, delicious food and outstanding service. You are paying for the memorable moments with the local wildlife (giraffes, with some... More
