We stayed at Giraffe Manor mid February. We were transferred to the hotel and greeted with a warm welcome by the staff. We were shown to our room, the Karen Blixen Suite which was stunning, it is in the courtyard at the back of the main house. We had homemade lemonade on the front lawn and a lovely lunch and they catered for our fussy taste without question. We then went to the Giraffe centre and had a walking tour with Evan our fantastic guide. We came back for the early evening visit by the giraffes and naughty warthogs and this was complimented by a Gin and tonic. My son is 10 and the staff encouraged him to feed the Giraffes and he became chief warthog chaser to keep them off the lawn! Dinner was a fantastic meal out in the courtyard, again with changes to accommodate our fussy tastes without hesitation! After dinner we gathered with the other lovely guests in the lounge for tea and liquors which was the perfect end to a wonderful day. The Next morning we were woken with hot chocolate delivered to the room early so we could go and greet the giraffes for breakfast and have many more wonderful photo opportunities. The hotel, I agree is not cheap, but I think is worth every penny. Not just the Giraffes and beautiful surroundings but the friendly and professional staff that made our stay a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you to all at Giraffe Manor!
