After landing from a 22 hour flight from Australia, this was a simply STUNNING place to arrive to for a bit of a rest before commencing our safari. Its around a 45-60 min drive through the smog and amazingly busy traffic to the Manor but believe me it is worth it (even if you are jetlagged). On arrival you see... More

Having previously stayed at the Giraffe house several years ago, I was unsure if it would again meet my high expectations. Believe me it did. This time, I stayed with my daughter for (unfortunately) only one night on my way to a safari camp. The accommodation has been increased by the building of another similar house, but this has only...

We arrived here with our 3 kids (16, 14 and 11) after 4 nights in safari, and were warmly greeted by Giles who showed us to our 2 incredible rooms. The manor is simply stunning and beautifully furnished. We were in the new building which is very sympathetic to the original manor, the rooms were huge and we were offered... More

Giraffe Manor is truly one in a million. We stayed two nights and was a perfect place to stay and to visit some of the shops in not far from there. Giraffe Manor provided us with a driver. Some of the places we went included the Utamaduni Craft Shopping Venue -- a good place to purchase local crafts. Mat Bronze... More

Doesn't get better than this in Nairobi! The service, the food, the experience, the atmosphere...hands down the best experience you'll have while you're visiting Nairobi. It can be a bit pricey, but it's worth it. Just keep in mind, the Giraffe Manor is not your typical hotel (no pool, bar, no fitness center etc), more of an all inclusive B&B.... More

What an amazing place! We felt like we had to pinch ourselves constantly, couldn't believe what we were seeing. Wonderful being able to interact with the giraffes so closely in such a magnificent setting. The staff were fabulous, so professional but so friendly. The food was outstanding and the service was first class. We have all vowed to come back... More

I arrived early in the morning and visited the elephant sanctuary in the morning before my wife and children joined me arriving on a later flight. Giles was extremely accommodating and helpful both with my early morning arrival, last minute plans to see the elephants, arranging a late family lunch and every other aspect of our short stay. The food,... More

We just spent two nights at the manor and had the time of our lives! We are a family of four with two grown children ages 20 and 16. We have travelled the world but Giraffe Marnor is one of the best things that we've ever done! The friendly staff and good food (there are 3 vegetarians) were top notch.... More

I was concerned by the name and description that this would be a touristy, "staged" place to stay on our way to the Mara but followed an excellent travel planner's advice. I am so glad we did! Giraffe Manor is a "manor" in all sense of the word. The history is interesting as well. Resident Rothschild giraffe are rare in... More
