Inside Giraffe Manor

Inside Giraffe ManorLike0

Last week, I had a little sneak peek inside one of the most photographed hotels in the world and a bucket list for so many people including myself. I stayed at Giraffe Manor for one night and it was probably all I needed to soak in the excitement and magic of the place. I’ve learned that guests visit Giraffe Manor at a point of their trip before heading to the bush (safari) or right after they had their safari trip to either start their Kenya journey at the Manor, or towards the end of their trip.

Giraffe Manor is 40 minutes away from the airport and when I first arrived, it felt like I was looking at a pop-up pinterest picture and had to pinch myself twice before realizing this was my reality.

Part of The Safari Collection, the manor is on 12 acres of private land with a giraffe sanctuary right across the property. Back in the days, it used to be a hunting house. Its herd of resident Rothschild giraffe pops in every morning at 6am to the breakfast window till 8:30am and you can also enjoy feeding them at 5pm while you have your afternoon tea in the garden. Breakfast, lunch and dinner is served in different dining areas and the in-house guests make part of your trip as one family. It’s exciting to meet everyone for the first time and hear about their Kenya journey they have been on or about to start. The most important thing I have learned from the team at Giraffe Manor is “Don’t touch anything” Meaning, the giraffes. They will guide you on who you can feed and who isn’t so…social. It’s a wonderful place to visit with children as they are all welcomed at any age and prices are on full board basis. Complimentary chauffeured vehicles are available for sightseeing, however guests may need to share vehicles depending on demand and availability.
