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

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

I heard about Giraffe Manor several years ago and had kept it on my list. Finally, we were flying through Nairobi and I took the opportunity to stop for one night. Giraffe Manor was wonderful!! My five year old was amazed, and while a little shy with the giraffes at first, with the help of the Giraffe Manor team soon... More

Every review of Giraffe Manor says the same thing – It is pricey, the rooms are lovely, the food is good and the staff are welcoming. And, it is something you absolutely should do if you can. I will not repeat long descriptions of all of those wonderful qualities, but I will confirm that they are all 100% true! The... More

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel special, everyone calling you by name and making you feel welcome. A special thank you to Tony for his professional and friendly manner which set the tone for our stay. Giraffe Manor is a boutique hotel with old-world charm. You can’t help but relax strolling in the lush gardens surrounding... More

I was lucky enough to nab a room at Giraffe Manor. Tip-make your reservations a year out. It is quite an experience. Petting, kissing and observing giraffes this close! An experience of a lifetime!!!! The Manor is beautiful. Attention to detail, food and service is fantastic. We arrived very late, and the staff stayed up to prepare a light supper... More
