Giraffe Manor is the best I've been to in Kenya. It feels that you have been invited by a family to come over for a weekend visit. Don't expect a front desk, I've been met by the friendly Manor's manager, Tony from the car with a staff to help me with my luggage. Tony personally brief me with a bit... More

Giraffes are my favorite animal and you can't find an experience like this anywhere else.Recently, I was asked where my best customer service experience was, I told them hands down it was at the Giraffe Manor in Nairobi Kenya. However, I think what truly astounds me is how genuine the staff are in making you feel at home, they truly... More

What a way to spend our last night in Kenya. Grand old world elegance and charm, warmth, friendliness, staffs eagerness to accommodate any whim of their guests, fabulous food (five star quality),enormous comfy rooms, large balcony's. That is all before you put into the picture the up close and personal encounters with the Giraffes. Drinks and nibbles on the front... More

This was our third trip to Africa and our second to Kenya. On our way to various safari camps we decided to spend a day at Giraffe Manor. We had heard good things about it but our own experience exceeded every expectation. The place is beautiful, food is excellent and the staff is delightful. The outstanding experience, however, is the... More

This is, quite simply, an amazing place. Apart from the unique attraction of the resident giraffes and warthogs in the grounds, the warmth, friendliness, helpfulness and hospitality of the management and staff are truly outstanding. The comfort of guests is absolutely their first priority and the level of service is exemplary. Nothing is too much trouble for them. We stayed... More

The large, old manor house sits on a large property where a rare Giraffe has been saved. You can watch them on the property and you can walk to the sanctuary below. Early in the morning the giraffe are set free to get breakfast at the manor. What an experience to feed these tall creatures from your second story room!... More

This place is truly unique. It is not a typical hotel so don't expect tv in your rooms or a pool! We stayed 2 nights in September 2013 and are so glad we did! The staff are among the best in the industry and are so attentive and friendly- wanted to take them home with us! This place has to... More

My family and I stayed in the Karen Blixen suite last year, and what a beautiful space it is. The staff lit a fire in the fireplace each evening while we were having dinner! A bath tub you can do laps in (well almost). Staff are wonderful. The food is amazing (even for picky children). But of course the main... More

My family (6 adults, 3 children aged 8,7 and almost 5) started our African adventure by spending 2 nights here before going on to the Masai Mara and then South Africa. What an amazing introduction to Kenya and (some of) its animals for our family, of whom only my wife and I had visited before. You can believe all the... More

Our trip to Nairobi Kenya was exciting, however, I did not stay at the hotel. We were about half a block away visiting the Giraffes that were the same ones that visited the hotel. I saw one giraffe with it's head in someone's window suite! We were given pellets to feed the giraffes with our hands, if we dared. Someone... More
