Having gotten married on the roof of Hotel Giraffe in NYC, our hearts were completely set on including a couple of nights at Giraffe Manor as part of our African Safari honeymoon. We organized the trip around the only dates the Manor had available in late September and I am so thrilled we did! It is an absolutely magical place... More

This is one of the best run and loveliest hotels we have been at anywhere in the world—and we have stayed at many five-star places! The manor houses are warm and inviting. On a chilly day, the fireplaces were lit, drinks and hors d'oeuvres were served outside to watch the sunset or inside to snuggle by the fire, all followed... More

It's absolutly a briljant place, just ouside of Nairobi. I just can't imagine a more perfect breakfast. Enjoying the fresh breath, juce and eggs, meanwhile the giraffs were watching us through the windows. The food is verry verry good, the rooms are ok. I must honestly say, i did expect a bit more from the rooms considdering the price. Still... More

I've been home for only 10 days and my soul longs for Giraffe Manor. Actually, it did from the moment we left. Having planned this trip 18 months ago, I had expected it to be spectacular and little did I know how wrong I would be. It was beyond spectacular. It was stunning and magnificent. Our suite was spacious and... More

Showers wonderful, food fantastic ( read the rest of my reviews - I don't always glow with praise!) Giraffes and wathogs wandering around made it amazing. Very sad we missed breakfast with the giraffes but will definetly... More

Excuse the pun but Giraffe Manor really is "head and shoulders" above any other hotel in Nairobi. Other than it is a real manor house with excellent meals and service, where else can you have giraffes regularly stick their heads into your bedroom or the dining room while you're having breakfast? Going to Nairobi and not staying at Giraffe Manor... More

On arrival we were meet by one of the managers (Giles) and shown around the Manor. We were offered drinks and refreshments. All the staff were amazing, they cant do enough for you. This place is everything and more. If you want to get up close and personal with the giraffes and feel like a king or queen this is... More

I can easily say my passion in life is traveling and I have been to some amazing places in the world. While I have much left to explore, this place was a gem! Such an extraordinarily scenic environment!. I went with my parents, husband and two daughters and it was a highlight of our safari vacation. A lot of people... More

Giraffe Manor was a disappointment! I really felt like I was staying in a glorified zoo with rooms. There are only 7 Giraffes and there is a pubic park about 50 feet from the hotel that is open until 5:00 every night and people come and stuff the Giraffes full of feed pellets. We stayed in the new addition house... More

You often see holiday pictures in brochures which turn out to be rather more appealing than the actual holiday it’s self. Not in this case. You really do get what you see and more. Feeding the Giraffe was totally amazing. The hotel staff were very professional and attentive. Pure luxury. A perfect end to our holiday in Kenya.
