Not many places in the world where you can feed giraffes - holding a pellet between your teeth. The younger giraffes are definitely better kissers! Giraffe Manor is situated in a quiet part of bustling Nairobi. Set within large manicured gardens, this property is well run with helpful friendly staff who are eager to assist with whatever you require. From... More

I am at a loss for words with one of the previous reviews about room for improvement, I think they stayed somewhere different from us. Nothing....and I mean nothing was too much trouble for the staff here. We arrived and as we had come from Arabia we were asked if we were feeling the cold, we were, so a fire... More

We arrived at Giraffe Manor very late at night after a long flight from London. We were greeted by a great staff which had refreshments and pot pie. The food was delicious! After that we went to our rooms, Jock and Betty. They were beautiful and had fabulous vies. We woke up the next morning to giraffes outside our windows.... More

Giraffe Manor tops them all. The manor is a vintage hunting lodge, elegantly furnished, with meticulously maintained grounds. The staff are everywhere, dedicated to taking care of your every need, and a car is at your service for local activities. The rooms are spacious and clean, with cozy touches and fresh flowers daily. Breakfast is simply delightful, with the giraffes... More

Started our honeymoon here and had a great time. The feature attractions are the giraffes, and they do not disappoint. You'll want to be downstairs at 7am to watch the feeding begin. The photos of our giraffe kisses are great. Food was good and dining outside for dinner was really nice. The staff had a light meal waiting for us... More

We spent 2 nights at the Giraffe Manor recently. Our pick-up from the airport was timely but we were told when stuck in traffic en route to the manor that the air conditioning was not working in the van. Nairobi traffic with no a/c is not pleasant! The rooms were nice and the house itself is beautiful. The giraffes are... More

This hotel is the most wonderful place. Your price includes meals and drinks. The food is outstanding. The rooms are spacious and immaculate. And to be able to feed and pet some real giraffes is the best feeling in the world. In the morning they stick their heads into your window to be fed. The breakfast room opens up and... More

And that is not an exaggeration. Had a rough night, but when we were picked up at our previous hotel, we were greeted by a wonderful driver (who even knew that we wanted to go to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Center and told us that he would be taking us later in the day). Once we got to Giraffe Manor,... More
