Wow. Undoubtedly the best place I have ever stayed. The staff and service are fantastic, the rooms are beautiful, the food is great, and the mansions and its surrounds are gorgeous. You really feel like a guest at a beautiful mansion with giraffes. Worth the splurge if you can afford it, and unquestionably the best part of our safari experience.... More

My wife and I paid US$ 1000/night to be awake all night! An intermitent noise each 30 sec from some equipment as a router did not allow us to sleep. Terrible! Giraffes are nice... But it dis not pay off!

I had seen the Giraffe Manor on the travel channel, and in Conde Nast and in Travel & Leisure -- and I even set up my entire safari experience to start with the manor because of those reviews. This was by far - the most incredible place I have ever stayed. We arrived late at night in Nairobi, tired from... More

After reading all the reviews I could find about Giraffe Manor, I was expecting a lot and I was not disappointed! My suggestion would be to arrive at 11.00am when check in starts and don't make any other plans for the day! We stayed at the Manor all day and just enjoyed what it had to offer. We spent time...

Excellent service in a wonderful place. Harmony with African nature and service are making this place just facinating. One of the best places I have ever visited traveling a lot. Wish to all staff and general manager all the best and good luck. Please keep this wonder. Thank you all for the great job you are doing. Thanks to all... More

If you took the giraffes away from this place, you really wouldn't be left with much. The accommodation is fine, nothing wrong with it at all, but hardly noteworthy. The food is stodgy English fare that countries with a colonial background would be well served to move on from. But it's all about the giraffes, and let's face it -... More

Shocking service with trying to book a room via Africa Point. (one of the vendors on the Giraffe Manor’s website as booking agents.) I got a very quick response to book a room but when I then asked at what time breakfast with the giraffes was and how long it would take to get from the Giraffe Manor to the... More

This experience is one I will never forget! It is almost surreal to have a giraffe pop it's head through the window and eat from your hand. To have a giraffe "kiss" in the morning it something I will never forget. The Manor itself is just fantastic, the staff are friendly, helpful and polite and the setting is magical. The... More

We really enjoyed our layover in Nairobi at Giraffe Manor. While we only spent one very jet-lagged evening and night there, we loved every minute. We sat outside in the early evening watching and feeding the giraffes, and had a lovely dinner afterwards. Our room on the first floor was very spacious and comfortable and we had a great night's...
