All the accolades are justified. This place is absolutely amazing. The staff are fantastic, the food is excellent, the rooms are lovely and then there are the giraffes. It was seriously cool to feed and pat these gorgeous animals. If you are contemplating staying at this unique 'manor', do it. You'll love it.

We stayed for 2 nights in order to sort out a wedding licence in Nairobi. It was my wife's choice & I'm very glad she insited we went. We've been on safaris before & have stopped in some "jazzy" places but this unique. The house itself is beautiful & the food even better. Apart from 1 trip into Nairobi we... More

Giraffe Manor is a place like no other, an incredible home built in the 1930's and beautifully maintained.Our room was elegantly furnished, large and welcoming with roses placed throughout. The Rothchild Giraffes are magnificent, and feeling their tongues run over your open hand as you feed them is amazing. And yes, they do join you for breakfast by sticking their... More

We arrived at Giraffe Manor, and were immediately greeted with hot towels, drinks, and anything else that we needed. Our laundry was immediately taken from us, we were shown the property and our room. Both the entire property and our room were amazing. It was so comfortable, and beautiful. Our room was in the original main house, and had a... More

Can you image arriving at 3:00 AM from a flight from Europe and have two giraffes stick their heads in the lobby windows? Amazing! Fabulous experience for grandchildren with beautiful rooms, wonderful food, and most attentive staff. Too bad you don't offer 6 stars!

We began our African adventure with a day and night at the Giraffe Manor. We loved the Manor, the staff, the grounds, and the food. All of the staff we friendly and attentive and all of the giraffes were gentile and elegant. The warthogs were great comic relief. I highly recommend it.

We recently stayed at the Giraffe Manor with our two teenage daughters. It really is a truly unique and amazing place. The grounds are beautiful with nine gorgeous giraffes in residence just waiting to come and greet you. The rooms are lovely, the main house like an English country manor house and nothing is too much trouble for any of... More

We stayed at Giraffe Manor for the first two nights of our Kenya honeymoon. I wish I could have stayed a week! Beautiful grounds, amazingly friendly staff who take care of you, delicious food, cozy fireplace with help-yourself booze for evenings, and, um, you get to feed and pet giraffes! Need I say more? We arrived late at night and... More

We stayed just one night as a family before our return to the UK. A truly unique experience -one for children of all ages to revel in. Service was superb with excellent staff - we were wonderfully looked after.
