I read about Giraffe Manor when I was 10 years old and knew someday I would go! And I did! Everything about Giraffe Manor exceeded my expectations! The fabulous hosts and staff, the delicious food, the AMAZING giraffes! Loved it!

We went to Giraffe Manor after arriving at 10:30 pm from New York, via Brussels. They had a just-right candle lit dinner (chicken pot pie, complete with pastry giraffes on top) ready for the five of us, as well as charming English colonial style rooms. And of course breakfast with the giraffes was the highlight - perfect way to start... More

Planning a safari and beach vacation? Extend your safari experience with a stay at Giraffe Manor. Excellent service, food and overall communal experience with the giraffes makes this a very special place when you have something special to celebrate - or just spending time with that special someone.

This was quite a surprise. The house looks like an English Manor house. Very nicely appointed rooms. The setting is quite near Nairobi and yet very quiet and peaceful. Very good food, and a delight when the giraffe stick their heads through the windows and share breakfast with you. A big surprise (you are given special giraffe food - they... More

Beautiful old manor with a newer manor house in the back for more rooms. The hotel was almost empty so they provided our daughter to stay in the room next to ours free of charge. Very generous and appreciated with both rooms being large, wonderfully appointed and clean. With the place to ourselves the next day we got to pretend... More

We decided to try out the Afternoon Tea at the Giraffe Manor in Karen that is offered to non-residents between 4 and 6pm on a booking basis only. We called and booked but not before our credit card details were taken just in case we don't turn so that we can be charged. Fair enough! We did turn up, four... More

Wow!! This place is absolutely amazing! We stayed here for one night before starting our safari, and it was worth every penny. On arrival at the manor we were ushered to the grassed area by the house and overlooking the property...where we were greeted by a giraffe! Whilst the staff went through the check in formalities we spent time hand... More

Near Nairobi, Kenya is Giraffe Manor. The main part of the hotel was the home of a transplanted European who modeled it after a Scottish Hunting Lodge. The rooms are done up in period furniture, and quite comfortable. We stayed in a second floor suite with a deck and fireplace ( Inthink it was the Daisy suite). Meals are included,... More

Actual stay date was in January 2008, not January 2015. Yes a long, long overdue review. I first read about Giraffe Manor in Vanity Fair and when my trip to Kenya was coming together knew I had to stay here. I visited during Kenya's civil unrest had the privilege staying at Giraffe Manor. From the minute the minivan crossed the... More
