We spent two nights at Giraffe Manor (4-6 January 2015) and it was amazing. The hotel itself is set in a striking old manor house- faithfully maintained by the swarm of staff. Everything is just right and as one would expect in an expensive 5 star hotel - the food delicious, the rooms spacious and comfortable and the service is... More

Giraffe Manor is expensive, but it's worth every penny. This hotel has been on my radar for 5+ years, but I was still hesitant to spend so much money on one night as I typically try to be frugal when traveling. However, I wish I had more money and time to spend there. It was an amazing experience. This was... More

I stayed at the Giraffe Manor with my husband on our honeymoon. The hotel is stunning, the staff is amazing and accomodating, the food is excellent and the giraffes are beautiful. We had an early flight and were so sad we were going to miss breakfast with the giraffes, instead, we got an earky and private breakfast with the giraffes.... More

We spent one lovely night at Giraffe Manor and wished we had spent an extra night to enjoy such beautiful surroundings. It is not every day you can have breakfast with a giraffe or cheeky warthogs! We arrived before lunch and unfortunately my husband was feeling a little ill but the Manager and team did everything they could to make... More

I had waited nearly a year for this trip and wasn't dispointed at any point. We had planned a two night stay here and we're glad we did. We paid for early check in and after driving through busy nairobi we arrived to see a couple of the giraffes heading back down into the trees after breakfast but as we... More

We came to Giraffe Manor for tea for my birthday, and it was incredible. They went above and beyond to make the experience the best possible. The they called the giraffes over with ease, and we took as many photos with them/ played with them as long as we wanted. They took us on a tour of the cottages, and... More

Giraffe Manor is the most magical place that I have ever visited. After driving though the dark roads of Kenya I was a little worried about where we would end up, but what we found exceeded all of our expectations. Just outside of the bustling city is this gorgeous reserve where giraffes and warthogs roam free and visit with all... More

The Betty and Daisy Rooms are on the second floor of the Manor and each has a balcony. The suite has a spiral staircase to an upper level with beds that our granddaughters enjoyed. All rooms...

One of the highlights of our honeymoon - we absolutely loved Giraffe manor. The staff were sensational - they couldn't do enough to help us enjoy our stay. The interaction with the Giraffes is an incredible experience and something you'll never find anywhere else!

My family stayed for two nights and had a phenomenal time. The food, service, and giraffes were all wonderful! We truly enjoyed the staff as well, both managers, and then Brown, Peter, and Brian. Great for kids or couples!
