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...

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...

My family and I stayed at the Giraffe Manor in Nairobi in December of 2016. Would we stay at the hotel again? Yes. Would we recommend it to friends? YES!!!!!! This is one of my family’s top travel experience of all time. I can’t believe anyone could give this manor lower than a 5 rating. While expensive, it is certainly...

An incredible way to end our vacation! The interaction with the giraffes is up close and personal. Beautiful setting, lovely rooms, delicious meals and the GIRAFFES! Arrive mid day for lunch and you'll get the full experience. Afternoon tea is served on the lawn and the giraffes come to visit. Breakfast is something you'll never forget! The giraffes are eager...

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.

Giraffe Manor was our first stop in Kenya. We stayed for two nights. The giraffes of course are the main reason to stay here. They come up for treats in the morning and evening, and so there are numerous photo ops. The staff are also very friendly and willing to assist in capturing the moment for you and your companions....
