Giraffe Manor Nairobi, Kenya

Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel reminiscent of 1930s grandeur, boasting art deco features and four-poster beds. The hotel accommodates 25 guest in 10 luxury en suite rooms, each with their own distinct style, as well as spacious bathrooms and elegant furnishings.

The manor is set in lovely grounds and surrounded by 140 acres of indigenous forest in the leafy Langata/Karen area, 20 kilometres from Nairobi city centre.

It is a unique place to stay, with the resident giraffes visiting morning and evenings - often sticking their heads through the large windows of the dining rooms.

Giraffe Manor is a fantastic place to start or end your journey in Kenya - especially if you are travelling with your family. It's perhaps the most fun place to stay in Nairobi and certainly one of the most comfortable. Rothschild giraffes are endangered and a stay here offers a wonderful opportunity to observe these gentle giants and learn more about them and the battle to conserve them.
