If you’re looking for the next destination to hit with the kids, look no further… especially if you’re into giraffes, nature and safari vibes. This Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya, is the ideal place to have you and your kids make acquaintance with endangered Rotchild’s giraffes over breakfast (literally), adopt or meet a baby elephant (probably adopt), or just sit back and relax over a cup of tea while watching the sunset (mom and dad).
The Giraffe Manor is owned by The Safari Collection and is an exclusive boutique hotel, set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi. 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.
However, the most fascinating thing about Giraffe Manor is its herd of resident Rothschild’s giraffe who may visit morning and evening, sometimes poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.
And if giraffes eating off your plate are not enough, you can enjoy a wide range of different activities – from horse riding, hot-air ballooning, fly camping under the stars, camel trekking and visiting local villages, to learning about native traditions and many more.
