Stately elegance and charm in Kenya’s most iconic hotel
Set within a sprawling 140 acres of pristine indigenous forest, Giraffe Manor is a stately exclusive boutique hotel steeped in history and old-world charm. The estate is home to a resident herd of curious Rothschild Giraffes who pay the hotel regular visits in search of treats from guests. It is no surprise that this iconic hotel is considered to be one of the most Instagrammed properties in the world.
The Giraffe Manor is just under an hour from Nairobi and is the ideal start (or end) to a thrilling safari in Kenya. The historic manor house with its stately façade, elegant interior, lush manicured gardens, sunny terraces and charming courtyards transport guests to a bygone safari era, reminiscent of the film, Out of Africa. The extraordinary appeal and romantic setting is enhanced even further by the fascinating giraffes who are known to stick their heads right into the windows to greet guests before retreating back to their forest sanctuary.
This elegant hotel has a range of accommodation options, including superior rooms, suits and a newer Garden Manor wing. The hotel boasts opulent Art Deco features throughout with luxurious furnishings like romantic four-poster beds, spacious bathrooms and all the trimmings synonymous with The Safari Collection.
