Giraffe Manor - Kiss a Giraffe!

A travel blog entry by ranlo


Flight from Sala's Camp in the Maasai Mara was about 35 minutes to Nairobi Wilson airport. George from Giraffe Manor met us holding the cutest giraffe sign.

A bit of Scotland in Kenya - Giraffe Manor

A travel blog entry by juliediehl


We left the dust and wonder of the Serengeti for a tiny little airstrip to head to Arusha and then on to Kilimanjaro airport on Saturday (Steve's birthday). The night before, the staff at the tent camp had a big celebration for him, with the staff doing a conga singing line in his honor and magically making a cake appear in this far-away place. …

Living with the giraffe in a classic, old manor

A travel blog entry by jaynewick


Sunday was a quiet day in Kampala; Jim fell ill to what we think was a bacterial bug, not unlike the symptoms I had after I was in Uganda for 2 weeks. It left him weak and dehydrated. It was a good thing we weren't traveling on Sunday as previously planned. Originally, we were going to take the 12-14 hour bus ride to Nairobi, but chose to fly …

Giraffe Manor

A travel blog entry by janemacg


Giraffe Manor is an amazing building dating from 1932. Rothschild giraffe have been bred here since 1974 when there were less than 150 animals left. Meeting a giraffe up close is one of those experiences that can't be topped - while having our lunch, Lyn - a 14 year old giraffe - turned up and wanted her lunch too. No words to describe this - you …

    Coming here feels like stepping back in time when you drive up and see this beautiful old manor house that was built in the 1930's. The grounds are as beautiful as the manor house with the giraffes and warthogs joining you as you sit on the outside patios. We had the Betty Room, which is in the main building on the second floor right above the breakfast room. Perfect for getting to feed the giraffes first thing in the morning. The room is quite large and beautifully furnished with an equally large bathroom. The food is absolutely wonderful. The staff is exceptionally atttentive and always asking what they can bring you. We've never felt so pampered! A car/driver even took us to a couple of shops we wanted to see. Of course, the highlight here is feeding the giraffes. What a unique experience!! This was a perfect place to end our time in Africa. Anyone coming to Nairobi should definitely include staying here.

    We enjoyed two days and nights at the manor, just outside Nairobi. The manor is beautifully decorated, with many conveniences in a sophisticated setting. The staff pay attention to every detail, including photo opportunities for you and your family. The manor was fully booked during part of our stay, but there was plenty space for quiet and harmonizing with nature, or just relaxing. Once in a lifetime experience. WELL DONE!
