Giraffe Manor, Nairobi
Giraffe Manor is the only hotel in the world where you can share your breakfast with a giraffe. Located within a 140-acre wildlife sanctuary, the Manor is home to 10 Rothschild’s giraffe that can be fed by guests during breakfast or afternoon high tea when the gentle, long-legged residents of the forest emerge in search of tasty treats. A small and intimate boutique property built in the 1930s and neighbouring Karen Blixen’s famous Ngong Hills farm, Giraffe Manor is the perfect place to start your romantic adventure. Spend your days exploring the nearby attractions or relaxing in the peaceful gardens and then enjoy a private dinner in the manor’s secluded, candle-lit Orchid House.
Romantic Tip: Don’t miss the chance to ‘kiss’ one of our beautiful giraffes during your stay.
