Located in Nairobi, Kenya, Giraffe Manor Hotel is one of the city’s most iconic buildings. Full of character, picturesque and set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in Langata, a suburb of Nairobi, this location goes way back, in the 1930s when Europe visitors flocked to East Africa to enjoy safari. The verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, make of this hotel a favourite destination for tourists all around the world.
Beside its elegant façade and interiors, Giraffe Manor is famous for being the home of a herd of Rothschild giraffes. According to the hotel’s website “these beautiful creatures often visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary”. But giraffes are not all you can see here. A getaway at Giraffe Manor will also include excursions to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, where guests can meet, feed and adopt a baby elephant. This exclusive boutique hotel, full of grandeur and boasting with deco art features, where you can feed giraffes from your window, is most definitely a one of a kind experience.
