This hotel is like dream comes true. Experience, nothing like any other. Driver picks you up from the airport at no extra cost, then you arrive to this fantasy hotel in about 45mins depending on the traffic. I had early flight so they let me check in earlier which costed me $60 including breakfast. Upon arrival, I had breakfast with... More

Arriving at Giraffe Manor is like stepping in to a magical world - but for two days we enjoyed this as our reality. The Manor is wonderfully set up with numerous private spaces and communal areas if you feel like being more social. We stayed in the Finch Hatton Suite with our two daughters (11 and 8). It was perfectly... More

We stayed at Giraffe manor for 1 night. Feeding giraffes and seeing them so close up was a memorable experience. However dinner was below average almost like plane food. Most of the guests struggled to eat the starter and main course. Tea and coffee was cold during afternoon tea and dinner. We stayed in several camps whilst on safari where... More

What a place to be! Not for the tea, but for everything else. Three of us went there on January 24, 2016 for a Sunday afternoon tea. The place was a delight. The wine was good, but the giraffes stole the show. It was a great time to be there. The air was crisp and the blue sky made it... More

Spent two excellent nights here and it certainly lived up to all our expectations. All the staff were very friendly and very switched on to making sure all the guests had a first rate giraffe experience. The food and accommodation was also very good.
