After having a very exciting stay in the Mara and then arriving at Giraffe Manor, I was wondering if our trip could get any better and yes it did. Our driver, Julius, found us with ease at the airport and we had a hearty welcome from Giles, the manager, as the news of my birthday and our marriage at Sala's Camp had travelled through to Giraffe Manor which was totally unexpected. Giles gave us a tour of the facilities and then to our room where a bottle of bubbly was waiting for us, we were so spoilt and it was a lovely surprise. I thought that things would be a bit stiff at the hotel but not, the staff were all lovely and friendly and the atmosphere on the terrace certainly relaxes when the G&T's are served and the giraffes arrive. I had seen a program years ago with Joanna Lumley at Giraffe Manor and it had been on my bucket list and it certainly lived up to my dreams and expectations. The food as per Solio and Sala's Camp was fantastic, healthy and light which we enjoy, the service and facilities exceptional. It was so exciting to wake up in the morning and have a giraffe put its head into the window of your bedroom and then share breakfast with them. Thank you to Giles and the staff at GM for making our stay so memorable, it really is the perfect place to end a safari before a long flight back to Cape Town.
