Our Review

A great opportunity to interact with these magnificent creatures at eye level. A perfect way to start or finish a family safari adventure.This elegant family run hotel situated on the outskirts of Nairobi is a perfect start or ending point for any family safari. Your children will be bowled over as the resident giraffes duck their heads in through the windows at breakfast in search of a spare croissant! Giraffe Manor has the unusual distinction of sharing its home with eight giraffes who are free to roam the grounds, pop their head in the dining room window for breakfast as they normally do, or peer in the second floor bedrooms! On entrance into the Manor you can immediately sense there is something special about this place. Wood panelled walls, elegant furnishings and hint of nostalgia is evident in the many photographs and pieces that adorn this gorgeous building. The house comprises five double bedrooms, immaculately furnished in the style of their day, with large four-poster beds, antique furnishings and striking Art Deco bathrooms. The Karen Blixen Suite is perfect for families – it has a large adult double bed downstairs and then two sweet children’s beds on a mezzanine type deck, below the deck there is a snug area which little ones will love if they can tear themselves away from all the excitement outside. There is not a lot one can say about this fabulous hotel, except for it must be experienced for oneself!

  • Betty’s Room: Double room with fabulous 1930s décor, in-room fireplace and en- suite Art Deco bathroom.
