A 1930's manor hotel, on forested land near Nairobi, where giraffes join you for breakfast.

Giraffe Manor is set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest and is only 20 kilometres from Nairobi city centre. Built in the 1930s, this luxury boutique hotel has maintained all the charm of the era and is now famous for its resident herd of Rothschild Giraffe. Giraffe Manor offers you an unparalleled experience of the giraffes, with them vying for your attention at the breakfast table, the front door and even your bedroom window.

Giraffe Manor is also home to many characters including warthogs, bushbuck, dik dik and more than 180 species of birds and has a striking view of the Ngong hills.

Inspired by the manor’s original 1930’s decor, the 12 en-suite bedrooms are designed with large four poster beds, antique furnishing, striking art decor and spacious bathrooms. The Karen Blixen suite is ideal for families and has direct access to the courtyard which opens onto the giraffe sanctuary. Accommodates up to 29 guests.

Set in the suberbs of Nairobi, visits can be arranged to the Kenyan National Museum, Maasai Market, an elephant orphanage or visit designer shops that are close to the hotel.

Prices start from US$620 a night per person based on full board.
