Trends / Unique Itineraries & Tours

Just outside the city limits of Nairobi, Kenya, sits a countryside estate unlike any other. Here, guests can enjoy an interesting assortment of wildlife across the 12-acre property including the spirited chorus of nearly 200 bird species, as well as the friendly, muddy-faced warthogs. However, the main attraction is the 12 towering Rothschild giraffes that call this hotel home.

At Giraffe Manor is a British Colonial-style home originally built for a single family, but redesigned to accommodate guests as a hotel in 1983. While visitors eat breakfast or dinner served by the 60 staff members and gourmet chefs, the long-necked creatures from the front yard will poke their heads through the open windows for a bite of their own. Guests are provided with pellets to place on the enormous tongues of the giraffes, however the windows can be closed if an uninterrupted meal is preferred.

Additionally, those staying with the entire family should be pleased to know the giraffes seem to flock toward children and treat them with gently care. Other nearby activities include the AFEW Giraffe Center and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where visitors can observe baby elephants. An all included one-night stay at the giraffe manor costs $920.
