We were here sadly only for 1 day and 1 night via our safari with Abercrombie & Kent. ATMOSPHERE: After the grand wooden gates, we got our first glimpse of wildlife. Warthogs and giraffes adorn the front of the manor and have free roam of the property. The charming open-air stone manor is 2 stories with just 10 beautiful rooms... More

Overall This place is clean and tidy and offers a unique chance to get up close with the giraffe, be prepared to have them pay a visit to your room window or breakfast area. Rooms were comfortable if a bit basic and staff were friendly with our meal requests. Someone even ran into town to get us some toothpaste as... More

There is no better way to start or end your Kenya Safari trip by staying at least one night at Giraffe Manor. For All Kenya Safari visitors, one night stay at Giraffe Manor should be on the top of the list. The service, the accomodation, the food and the experience is out of this world. Feeding the giraffe, having breakfast... More

Perfect way to start our trip. Spent 3 nights here. Nice relaxing way to get over our jet lag. Stayed in Betty's room. The best for a nice balcony view and feeding the giraffes from your room. There was a room in the other building that was good for feeding too. Not sure of the name of it. The food... More

Giraffe Manor lives up to the hype; it's a gorgeous, first-rate hotel in a good part of Nairobi. After having been on safari for a week, George picked me up at Wilson airport and drove me the short ride back to the manor. After going through the huge giraffe gate, Tony came out to meet me and show me around.... More

Everyone wants to stay at the Giraffe Manor, and with just cause. You go to see, feed and kiss the giraffes, but the service, food and accomodation are exceptional. Everyone should stay here at least once in a lifetime. Definitely on the bucket list! Service was absolutely perfect and every whim attended to. I'd particularly like to thank Judy for... More

Staff is very lively and helpful, they know... More

This August I was able to revisit Giraffe Manor with my family after a 6 year absence. I wanted the experience to be as memorable for them as it had been for me when I had travelled there solo in 2008, so I booked 14 months out and requested Betty and Jocks Rooms at the front of the house. Judy... More

This place is heaven... Five star service, food was amazing, and being up close to the giraffes was the best of all. Tony greeted us warmly and was there for all of our needs. Julius was our driver and he was exceptional. Advice: save every penny you have and come here. I've traveled the world, and this place tops it... More
