I booked a stay at the Manor for myself and my adult daughter who truly loves giraffes. The entire experience from booking the stay with Juliet, to our arrival, the stay itself and our departure was seamless and beyond our wildest expectations. I had arranged airport pickup, breakfast, city tour and a visit to the David Sheldrake Wildlife Trust and...

I visited with my family in December 2014... it was a special occasion with our grandmother. The staff made us feel like royalty! After settling into our accommodation we were greeted outside by the warthogs and giraffe! The opportunity to interact with the animals at Giraffe Manor is incredible! A once in a life time experience! One for everyone's bucket...

I first a picture of the manor on instagram three years ago and thought it was photoshopped. When I looked it up...it was immediately added to my destinations. First the pictures don't lie, its exactly as it looks. Edgar was there to greet us and made us feel welcomed. One of the best and most friendly staff that I have...

It's been a lifelong dream of mine to stay here, and we finally did it. The property is beautiful, if a bit careworn. It definitely throws you back to the era of 'Out of Africa'. The obvious reason you're here is to feed giraffes, and on this level, it does not disappoint. We had crazy jet lag, so would turn...

It is just like no other place we ever stayed. Absolutely beautiful. Giraffes having breakfast with you, just magical. Staff superbly professional. Manager Tony extremely helpful. The only place we will ever stay while visiting Nairobi.

Giraffe Manor was the highlight of our trip to Kenya. It is exactly like the videos! The staff is exceptional. We were met at the airport by a driver from the hotel who provided us with an informational tour en route to the Manor. The manager met us outside and had our bags taken to the room. We stayed in...

We had a wonderful room, Kelly, situated in the court yard with windows out to the terrace where the giraffes come up to your room to be fed in the morning. The rooms (as is the hotel) are British colonial in style with giraffe motifs everywhere, but tastefully done. The food and service is perfect and you are made to...

We were completely enchanted with this "Manor" and, of course, with the delightful giraffes (and warthogs as well!).....We went for our kids to enjoy the giraffes, but my husband and I were equally as fascinated with them and their beauty and gentle nature! The staff and service were excellent and the manor and our family townhouse were beautiful and well...
