The giraffes and warthogs are an absolute riot, and they and the lovely location in Karen are the main reasons to stay at Giraffe Manor. The senior team (Linet, Tony and Michael) are switched on and attentive. Rooms are large and comfortable but - totally in keeping with the semi-shabby-chic country house theme - a bit old-fashioned. The food and drink were good, and high tea on the terrace with the animals was great fun (consisting mainly of G&Ts, wine and some nibbles). The living rooms on the main floor of both the original house and the new wing are comfy and full of fun and quirky pieces, and it was chilly enough that we were glad to have a fire lit in the lovely, large fireplace. It is pricey, though - if you're just looking for a nice place to sleep there are much less expensive decent hotels in Nairobi.
