I was concerned by the name and description that this would be a touristy, "staged" place to stay on our way to the Mara but followed an excellent travel planner's advice. I am so glad we did! Giraffe Manor is a "manor" in all sense of the word. The history is interesting as well. Resident Rothschild giraffe are rare in the wild but are bred here for future release as populations increase. Feeding the giraffes is not the only highlight. The rooms are lovely. Dining al fresco with fire heaters and attentive wait staff followed by after dinner drinks with fellow guests was fun! Great for couples and families.
