Classic elegant rooms, beautiful land and fantastic food. Be fed yourself and then go feed the animals. Great opportunity to learn more about giraffes and get up close and personal. Highlight of my trip.

The Giraffe Manor was recommended to us by our agents as the perfect place to relax after a busy safari, on route to the Mobassa coast. We arrived a lunch time to the most idyllic setting, nestled within the hustle and bustle of a busy Nairobi suburb. The wooden giraffe sculpture on the gates showed our driver we were in... More

This is very possibly the most incredible and unique place we have ever stayed at. We only stayed one night but it was still fantastic. The service and food was enough to make this place totally worth staying at. Throw in a few giraffes and you have a wonderful experience ahead. The staff were so friendly and helpful. Thank you...

This is a really, very special experience. The manor is all about sharing breakfast in the morning. It is pricey for rooms of its category - very charming, but not super luxury. Located in the suburbs of Nairobi, it is still good for a one-nighter as long as you have time to eat breakfast (7-8am) with the giraffes. Incredibly special!

We only had 12 hours there but from arrival to departure it was a real pleasure. Of course the giraffe feeding in the morning (from daybreak really) was the thing but breakfast and dinner were top class and the ambience was all about making guests feel as if they were at home. Well worth fighting through the Nairobi traffic to... More

Had the most amazing 2 nights ever in this fantastic hotel. If you can afford it, you'll have the most incredible time - and photos! My parents stayed in the Karen Blixen suite, and although we were meant to share a room, they gave me my own room. Some people have put that you 'have' to stay in the rooms... More

I was at Giraffe Manor with a family of 3 children 9,11, 13 and the experience was beyond my expectations! The food was fantastic, the service warm, impeccable and personable and the giraffe connection was out of this world. If you have children you do not want to miss this experience! Candle light dinner was terrific, and tea time hit... More

Lovely English manor home on a nice sized piece of land just outside Nairobi. The giraffe experience was incredible!! They are my favorite animals and wow- just incredible! You can feed them special animal pellets right from your hands- or they will give you a kiss and gently take it from your lips! I fed them for over an hour-... More

What a fabulous place! We can't stop talking about it, and not just because of the animals. To start off, we arrived late (flight delays). Our host asked if we'd like something to eat and we gratefully said yes. All we expected was a sandwich or something similar, but what we got was a candlelit dinner for two, with a... More

We stayed at Giraffe Manor and had an incredible experience! The manor is absolutely stunning, made of brick with beautiful vines growing all over it. It has multiple sitting rooms all tastefully decorated with plush couches, bookshelves full of wonderful books about Africa and Kenya in particular, beautiful old photos and paintings and old collectibles and handcrafts from Kenya.
