It is not often when everything you hope for is exactly as it turns out. Giraffe Manor had been on my bucket list since I was a child and saw pictures in a Garden and Home magazine. The visit was magical, and met all expectations. Interacting with the giraffes, both on the terrace and through the windows is exactly as... More

I saw the Giraffe Manor on Pinterest and like most solo travelers, googled it, looked at the price and shuttered. I don't know how many times I can reiterate this: IT IS 100% WORTH IT!! The staff, the food, THE GIRAFFES (duh). Everything was exactly what I expected it to be and nothing fell short- in fact, my expectations were... More

I want to write a well written and comprehensive review of this place but as soon as I get going I start babbling incoherently about just how incredible it was! It's such an incredible hotel, with amazing accommodation, food, staff, management and of course, the giraffes! I could go on and on and on about it, it was such a... More

We chose to spend our first night here as a way to ease ourselves into our inaugural safari experience and really enjoyed it. Being up close and personal with so many giraffes was very special, and we also thought the numerous and naughty warthog were sweet too although the hosts don't agree! This definitely worked at the beginning of our... More

Spent an afternoon talking to the giraffes here. Amazing work being done to protect the species and as well as the hotel, which we didn't stay in, the ability to visit and get up close to the giraffes was brilliant. It is so well done, the staff are really informed and helpful and there is nothing like being kissed by... More

Our second visit to GM did not disappoint. It's still great and interacting with the giraffes a complete treat. There were two things that happened though that I think really speak volumes about GM. Firstly, 3 out of our group of 4 were cut down with some form of gastro on New Years Eve and Nick and his team worked... More

This is one of the best places we have ever stayed. Being so close to these beautiful animals was breathtaking, and to get to feed and touch them is just so special. But Giraffe Manor is so much more than just the giraffes. The accomodations are out of this world. Top notch luxury and the staff could not have been... More

Situated in Karen Nairobi, this old 1930s English style manor boasts only a few luxurious rooms. It is a full board basis with all drinks included. ( it's luxury all inclusive) not what you usually get at All inclusive establishments. It is by no means a cheap affair and not for the budget traveller in anyway. The staff are delightful... More

Giraffe Manor has won awards for best family hotel in Africa. We actually stayed here for the first night of our honeymoon and it is well deserving of this accolade. The place is a beautiful house set in the grounds of a giraffe conservancy. The rooms are very elegant and we got to stay in Betty's room which I think... More

We stayed here in august 2015, Everything was incredible from the pickup at the airport by George holding a giraffe with our names on but the real magic begins as soon as you go through the giraffe gates into the manor itself. from the minute we arrived we were treated like royalty. a glass of lemonade was brought over to...
