Spend a few nights at Giraffe Manor to interact with and admire the endangered Rothschild giraffe. The Manor is a boutique hotel with ten beautiful rooms; its location in Nairobi means it’s a perfect stop either on the way to or back from your Kenyan safari adventure. The hotel’s building itself dates back to the 1930s, and all the rooms are individually and elegantly decorated.
As the hotel’s name suggests, the highlight of a stay here is having the giraffes join you for breakfast or dinner, poking their necks through the hotel’s windows in search of treats before retreating to the forest. It’s an unforgettable experience and one that captures Kenya’s welcoming friendliness and phenomenal wildlife.
Guided walks are available around the hotel and grounds, and Western & Oriental recommends a visit to the Sheldricks Wildlife Trust – here you can adopt, meet and feed baby elephants.
