It takes a real talent to provide both utter luxury and the familiar comfort of being at home and this place balances both beautifully. This is a truly unique and special place. We spent a few nights here in the lead up to Christmas before heading on safari and it was an unforgettable experience. The staff are flawlessly friendly and...

Sometimes you wonder about places that are heavily promoted around a single theme ... well, not this one! Giraffe Manor is everything you have seen in the photos, and better! The accommodation rooms are exceptionally good, hard to believe they were built in 2011, in a style to match the original 1930s manor house. It is all stunningly beautiful and...

This property is a really old manor house and yes giraffe arrive twice daily for their feeding. Morning they arrive 6:30 but leave at 8am so NO late breakfst if you want to feed in the dining room! Afternoon tea at 4pm brings the giraffes around again from 4:30-6pm. The staff offer you bowls of kibble and will take plenty...

This is a true manor,set inside a lovely park with animals roaming around and giraffes stopping by in the morning sticking their head through the window and waiting to get fed. A lovely hotel to finish your East Africa safari. Not cheap but quite unique and civilized.

We had the wonderful opportunity to stay here Christmas Eve, and it will be one of the most memorable Christmas Eves of my life. The moment I stepped into the manor, I was blown away by its charm and beauty. We were greeted by the most wonderful staff, which immediately handed us cool scented towels to refresh our hands with,...

We booked two rooms for our family of four. Everything was great and we have many great pictures and memories. The food was all good and no complaints there. I was disappointed when the noise from the kitchen started just before 5AM and woke us up, so I would suggest avoiding the room above the kitchen. The giraffe only visited...

Thank you for your review and patronage of Giraffe Manor Lovetotravelfamily4. We're pleased you enjoyed your experience. We always do our best to minimize the kitchen noise but regret that it still affected you - it is indeed one of the challenges we face as a mature & converted private residence. It may be worth noting that the giraffes, being...

This place is everything you expect—and much more. The staff was extremely friendly, personable, and accommodating—they knew our entire trip agenda and that one of us was a vegetarian! Edgar, Anthony, Bart, William, Brown, and others went well out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The rooms were old fashioned, like the mansion we stayed in, but comfortable....

Getting out of the airport we were surprised to see the National Park right on the doorstep of the city. A very pleasant...
