Best use of One Day at Giraffe Manor?

Greetings, We (2 adults) have the opportunity to stay at Giraffe Manor for one day and night in October. We will be arriving at the airport NBO at 6:25 in the morning and head directly to GM for breakfast with the giraffes. Does anyone know how long the giraffes stick around for breakfast? Also, we want to minimize our touring so we can relax and enjoy GM - any suggestions? We will go to Sheldrick Elephant orphanage in the evening to visit our adoptee - is it worthwhile to also go during the noon public viewing? We will also go to the Giraffe Center. Of the following other options, which do you think should be done during our stay at GM and which can be postponed to the day we check out? Karen Blixen museum, bomas, Matt Bronze, Kazuki beads, open air market - which one? Thanks

I stayed there last month. We had giraffes show up for a late afternoon snack and were able to spend some time with them before we headed over to Sheldrick's. Sheldrick's is at 5pm. The real show was in the morning for breakfast, I certainly felt like I had ample giraffe time. So as even as hard as it is to leave GM, the ellies are well worth it and I don't think you will feel deprived of giraffe time.

Worth knowing, though, that Giraffe Manor includes transport to local attractions (but not entrance fees etc) for all guests.
