GIRAFFE MANOR

Giraffe Manor boutique hotel in Nairobi is an exclusive hotel with a resident herd of wild Giraffes. Owned by The Safari Collection, this boutique hotel in Nairobi, is one of the most unique places to stay in the world. Giraffe Manor blends extraordinary wildlife encounters with exquisite hospitality and a long-term commitment to giraffe conservation. The historic manor house is set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi and is one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings. It has extraordinary appeal that harks back to the 1930s when visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris. With its stately façade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, guests often remark that it’s like walking into the film Out of Africa: indeed, one of its twelve rooms is named after the author, Karen Blixen.

One of the most fascinating things about Giraffe Manor is its resident herd of Nubian/Rothschild’s giraffes who may visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary. The Nubian/Rothschild’s species of giraffe was once highly endangered, but Giraffe Manor has long been part of a breeding programme which has successfully grown their numbers in the wild. Giraffe Manor boutique hotel in Nairobi, can be booked for the night or as part of a complete tailor-made Kenya safari with The Safari Collection.
