Giraffe Manor, Kenya
Giraffe Manor, owned by The Safari Collection, is an exclusive boutique hotel. It is set in 12 acres of private land which is within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the beautiful Langata suburb of Nairobi. Known as one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings, the Giraffe Manor has an amazing appeal, that dates back to the 1930s. That was the time when European visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris. From its stately façade and green gardens to chirpy courtyards, guests that stay here feel like they are walking into the film Out of Africa. But the most interesting thing about Giraffe Manor is its herd of resident Rothschild’s giraffe. They may visit those who are staying here in the morning and evening, sometimes poking their beautiful long necks into the room windows in the hope of a quick snack before they retreat to their forest sanctuary.
