Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel, owned by The Safari Collection. Often referred to as one of the most Instagrammed properties in the world, Giraffe Manor is set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi. Giraffe Manor is one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings.
The historic manor house has extraordinary appeal, that harks back to the 1930s when European visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris.
With its stately façade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces, and delightful courtyards, guests often remark that it’s like walking into the film Out of Africa: indeed, one of its twelve rooms is named after the author Karen Blixen.
One of the most fascinating things about Giraffe Manor is its resident herd of Rothschild’s giraffes who may visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.
Giraffe Manor can be booked for the night or as part of a complete tailor-made safari with The Safari Collection.
There are 12 rooms to choose from with their own distinct personality and decor, ranging from suites to twin rooms and featuring elegant furnishings and Art Deco features.
There’s a roof terrace overlooking the gardens in Daisy’s Room, Jack’s Room is a front-facing room with an in-room fireplace, while the Karen Blixen Suite enjoys views from the ground floor.
Wake to find the giraffes grazing outside your bedroom window, nibbling on the foliage that adorns the house. Your new friends will then swoop into the chandelier-filled dining room when it comes time for breakfast to say hello.
After a day of exploring the nearby attractions, you can come back to the hotel to unwind in front of a grand fireplace with a book.
You’ll enjoy all-inclusive perks at Giraffe Manor, where all meals and most drinks such as house wines, spirits, beers, and soft drinks are complimentary.
You will also be whisked away to the area’s popular sightseeing hotspots on a chauffeured vehicle.
The biggest highlight, however, is being given the chance to have an intimate interaction with Kenya’s wildlife.
