Giraffe Manor in Kenya

Don’t call it a dream, call it a plan!

Experience rating
Price from 550 $

Why we included this experience:

  • Imagine giraffes joining you for breakfast
  • Visit one of Nairobi’s most iconic destinations
  • Sublime afternoon tea on the terrace

Experience description

Meals can be slightly unpredictable at Giraffe Manor, a boutique hotel set within 12 private acres in the suburbs of Nairobi. There you’ll be, just sitting down for breakfast, when through the window comes a long neck, at the end of which is a peckish giraffe looking for a treat. And he’s probably not leaving until he gets one. Your stay in this stately mansion will evoke the romance of safaris in the 1930s, when guests would stroll the elegant terraces and courtyards in the sunset after dinner and cocktails.

Highlights of this memorable Nairobi gift experience include a guided walk through the AFEW Giraffe Centre where you can learn about the endangered Rothchild Giraffes, and a visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where you can meet some cute baby elephants. Frankly, though, what most guests here look forward to above all is their afternoon tea, taken on the terrace as the sun slips behind the Ngong Hills, with long-legged shadows moving gently across the lawns.
