This was hands down, a most amazingly unforgettable experience. I often read reviews before travel and bookings, but I rarely, if ever, write one. HOWEVER, Giraffe Manor is more than deserving of this review. My wife and I were not the average 1 or 2 night stay. We specifically flew to Nairobi just to stay at the Manor for the...

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Elkhart, Thank you so much for your glowing review of Giraffe Manor. We are elated to know that it met your expectations and that you enjoyed your extended stay with us.

Spending a day at Giraffe Manor is the perfect way to start or finish a safari. The entire experience is wonderful. It is located in a safe, quiet area in Nairobi. They picked us up from the airport. They also include breakfast, high tea, dinner and an excursion to one of many nearby attractions if you like. We always like...

Thank you for making Giraffe Manor your Nairobi hotel of choice, we appreciate your loyalty and, even more so, your enthusiasm for sharing your impressions here.

What a place! We stayed here one night at the end of our safari and as amazing as our safari had been, Giraffe Manor is just exceptional! We had Betty's room so we had the advantage of feeding the giraffes from our balcony before going down to the breakfast room. You have not lived until you have had one of...

My mom and I stayed two nights in Giraffe Manor near the beginning of our trip to Kenya. What an experience! The photos you see online are indicative of what you will experience-not just photos take. At the perfect moment. Giraffes are there in the morning for a good morning kiss and treat, pop their heads in throughout breakfast and...

I've been thinking of a way to write a review without bashing the manor. The experience in itself is one of a kind. I don't know of anywhere in the world where you can get so much one on one time with the giraffes or really any animal. I would say that this is the best place for someone who...

Must visit when in Kenya. The most fascinating thing about Giraffe Manor is its herd of resident Rothschild giraffe who may visit morning and evening, sometimes poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.
