Near Nairobi, Kenya is Giraffe Manor. The main part of the hotel was the home of a transplanted European who modeled it after a Scottish Hunting Lodge. The rooms are done up in period furniture, and quite comfortable. We stayed in a second floor suite with a deck and fireplace ( Inthink it was the Daisy suite). Meals are included,... More

Actual stay date was in January 2008, not January 2015. Yes a long, long overdue review. I first read about Giraffe Manor in Vanity Fair and when my trip to Kenya was coming together knew I had to stay here.

I debated spending the money to stay here, but I am so glad I did! It was a great experience, all the way around. After two weeks touring, relaxing here, surrounded by giraffes and good friends, was the perfect ending to our safari. The service could not have been better and the food was amazing. Our group had a wonderful... More

This place exceeded all expectations, really - no joke. After our flight being delayed in Dubai for 3 hours, they met us with no problems at the airport (I was concerned as an American and the latest trouble up in northern/coastal Kenya).

Living in Nairobi, my friends and I could not really justify spending the night at Giraffe Manor (I still might one day!) so we opted to go for high tea to celebrate my birthday and had a fantastic time.

We just got back from a 1 nights stay here. There was only one other person staying at the time due to it being low season so we pretty much had the place to ourselves.

First I will say that the staff were very courteous, friendly and attentive. We booked Betty’s room for the feeding experience from the windows in the morning, but there are so many opportunities to feed them throughout the day, it really isn’t necessary to pay the top price for this room which unfortunately has an old bathroom.

This place is beyond compare. It combines the elegance of an English manor with an African ambiance and a delightful epicurean experience. This is the place to stay either before or after a Safari, as a place to wind down and be pampered. There is nothing to improve upon, even the gift shop. The staff is so responsive and attentive...

In March 2015 I had the privilege of staying at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi. It has to rate as a unique experience because it's the first time I've hand-fed one giraffe and been kissed by another! The Manor is a beautiful place and the food, service and accommodation is hard to beat.
