Giraffe Manor is a small, residential-style property of only 12 rooms with limited capacity in the dining areas and lounges. The morning hours at the manor are amongst the most eventful as guests are partaking in the infamous giraffe breakfast experience whilst the team are catering to service and safety needs, followed by multiple check-outs and onward transfers. It is important to us that every guest is able to enjoy a unique and peaceful time which is why we carefully limit the number of people on site at all times. As such, we thank everyone for adhering to the check-in time and for understanding why early arrivals are not possible. We are pleased to be able to offer complimentary transfers to and from the manor but this is only possible if check-in and check-out times are adhered to.
If you are staying at one or more of our other properties (Sasaab, Solio Lodge, Sala’s Camp and/or Siruai Mobile Camp) then you might like to book a day room or special pass at The Retreat which is right next door to Giraffe Manor. Options include an Early Bird package for those arriving on early flights, a Retreat Day Pass for those wishing to use the facilities but who do not require a room or a Day Room. Each option will enable you to enjoy all the wellness facilities (pool, spa, steam room, sauna, hot tub, gym) as well as the restaurant, bar and gardens overlooking the giraffe sanctuary.
If you are not staying at another one of our properties, The Retreat is available to book as a standalone destination at 4 weeks from arrival if there is any last-minute space. Otherwise, our team are happy to assist you with booking day rooms at airport hotels or elsewhere within Nairobi if required. Full-day vehicle and driver rentals are also available.
