The hotel and rooms are beautiful and the experience with the giraffes coming to feed from your hands is amazing. The whole thing is a bit let down by the service which could benefit from improved communication between the staff who were all very friendly and polite. We completed details on dietary requirements but at dinner these had been ignored... More

This was such a unique and enjoyable location. The manor house was beautiful and the giraffes and warthogs were amazing to be with. The staff was warm and welcoming. It was a great experience that I would highly recommend. As a note- they needed to be reminded about food allergies a few times during our stay but, other than that,... More

1 night stop over in Giraffe Manor before heading off for 2 weeks safari and beaches with the family. We decided to cut short a few items from the days agenda to get here mid afternoon and timed it perfectly following the mornings visit to Karen Blixen's house and David Sheldrick's elephant orphanage in the morning. we arrived at 3pm,...

Giraffe Manor is an impressive place. Beautiful grounds and even more gracious wait staff. I will be completely honest;my experience was not as positive as 99% of all other reviews. This was due to the management team, not the kind and welcoming wait staff. I really enjoy writing positive reviews, however my experience should not go unsaid. My wife and... More

This is simply an extremely endearing and enchanting experience. In the evening you get to feed the giraffes outside the main door area. Staff guide you and are usually very keen to ensure you get nice pictures and experiences down to how to get a pic of the giraffe "kissing" you as you hold a food pellet in your mouth... More

I watched a TV programme in black & white when I was little and there was a British family having breakfast with giraffes. Finally I found this place and planned the trip to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Everything was perfect at the Manor, the giraffes, the warthogs, the staff, the rooms, the food, the wine and the warm and... More

The place is beautiful, the food excellent, the staff lovely and accommodating, and with all of that it could be an ordinary excellent boutique hotel, but the star attraction is the giraffes with the wart hogs playing a supporting role. We were here as a family of ten with five children who were totally captivated, as were we adults. My... More

Stayed here with my mum in the new wing. Both our rooms were beautiful - I loved my big bath tub, fireplace and huge bed. Mum's room was a totally different design but equally sweet. Perfect! The main hotel is wonderful - we enjoyed a leisurely afternoon tea and then went to David Sheldrick's to put the ellies to sleep.... More

The manor itself is beautiful the decorating is superb kind of old world but extremely comfortable. Upon arrival we were greeted by the manager Tony who is very passionate about the place. The staff are incredibly friendly. (Thanks George). George took us shopping and to the bank as well as several great sights around the suburb of Karen. He was... More
