We stayed at the Giraffe Manor for just one night which was a real shame I wish we had more time there. We were welcomed and shown around by very helpful and friendly staff. The accommodation is beautiful and food was fantastic. We had to leave at 5 am but that was no trouble for the staff they laid out... More

It is not often that a property lives up to its publicity hype and even rarer when it exceeds your expectations. Giraffe Manor in Nairobi achieves this with ease. This boutique hotel, noted for its resident herd of Giraffes and family of Warthogs, offers tastefully furnished heritage style rooms, good meals and attentive, engaging staff. You really do interact with... More

We stayed just one night at this beautiful property in January 2015 and had what can only be described as a magical time. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and the accommodations are fantastic. We stayed in the main house and had a balcony overlooking the grounds. We arrived early our first day and... More

The elephant (or giraffe) in the room with this place is the cost. Yes it's expensive, so the only question is, is it worth it? The answer is yes, yes, yes! A million times yes.

The stay at Giraffe Manor was one of the most memorable experiences of my lifetime. It is hard to describe how thrilling it was being able to experience the giraffes up close and personal--I will never forget it. The management and staff are friendly and helpful and extremely knowledgeable, and the food is fantastic. My advice is: Forget about how... More

My husband and I stayed at Giraffe Manor for 2 nights in December, the last stop on a trip that also included gorilla trekking in Rwanda and safari in Tanzania. This is a lovely property in a suburb of Nairobi. It looks like an British country house (actually a small compound of 3 houses) dropped into Africa, with a group... More

I kept thinking, "I have enough pictures of giraffes," but I could not pass up any opportunity to interact and photograph them. Since I was on my own, it was nice to have photos taken of me with giraffes and the staff were great about this. There are other interesting things to see nearby and transport can be easily arranged.

We spent two nights here in “Jock” room before setting off to Tanzania on safari. It was a perfect aperitif. And while, as everyone says, the interaction with the giraffes is unforgettable, the warthogs that snuffle around underneath the giraffes, hoovering up all the food that’s dropped are also pretty wonderful. The staff are welcoming, efficient and friendly and the... More
