Put Giraffe Manor on your must do list!!! What an amazing place. We spent two nights and had a terrific experience. The giraffes and warthogs were something to see. It's so amazing to have giraffes sticking their heads in while you're doing breakfast and coming to your window early in the morning and having you feed directly from your room(some...

We spent 3 weeks in Tanzania, Kenya, and Rwanda and Giraffe Manor was clearly a highlight of our trip. We spent 2 nights there... 1 night is too short, 2 nights was just perfect. We added Kenya into our trip just to spend time at Giraffe Manor. It was worth the travel to/from Nairobi just for the visit. The manor...

We stayed at Giraffe Manor for our last night in Kenya after am amazing 2 week safari in January this year, with the excellent Glorious Safaris - I booked Giraffe Manor independently as a last night special event. It is a fabulous place and if you love getting close to wildlife you must not miss this place. The giraffes are...

We spent two days of our Honeymoon at Giraffe Manor. What an amazing time. The grounds are beautiful, the food is fantastic and the gift shop is great too. They have resident giraffes and warthogs and the Giraffe Centre is within walking distance. Putting a giraffe food pellet in your mouth and having a giraffe take it out with their...

This place was amazing, my wife was like a little kid feeding these giraffes. The happy hour with cocktails and giraffes was incredible. Dinner that evening was really nice and the fact that we sat with the other guests was also very nice. The next morning I got up and there were giraffes at my second floor balcony ready for...

The experience of dining with the giraffes is certainly exceptional, but in our case our accommodation seriously detracted from our overall experience. The room was very small with a closet size bathroom with the smallest toilet I've seen in a hotel. The bed was very hard and the pillows very small. For two very weary travelers the poor nights sleep...

Having seen the manor from the giraffe centre on previous visits I have always wanted to stay there and so for a 50th birthday treat my husband booked it. Positives - the food was very nice in the main but the room that we were in called Adele was disappointing. This was in the new part of the hotel which...

Was here for the giraffes! Without any doubts, the experience of interacting and dining with giraffes worth 100 marks. Tony and the hotel team also work with great efforts to accommodate everyone's requests & desires. Thumbs up! Also, the common areas and dining rooms are very well decorated with a strong colonial feel. The rooms are very well preserved, although...

For the majority of those interested in staying at Giraffe Manor, this is a splurge. I've been wanting to stay here for over three years and finally decided to go about it on my own and add on a 3 day safari with the collection - what ended up at close to a $3k+ holiday for my birthday solo.
