Love this place. We ended our amazing trip to Kenya at Giraffe Manor and I couldn't have imagined a better way to say goodbye to this amazing country. The accommodations, grounds and staff are all top-notch. And you cannot beat the experience of waking up and eating breakfast wirh the giraffes, enjoying afternoon tea outdoors with the giraffes, having a...

This was hands down, a most amazingly unforgettable experience. I often read reviews before travel and bookings, but I rarely, if ever, write one. HOWEVER, Giraffe Manor is more than deserving of this review. My wife and I were not the average 1 or 2 night stay. We specifically flew to Nairobi just to stay at the Manor for the...

Spending a day at Giraffe Manor is the perfect way to start or finish a safari. The entire experience is wonderful. It is located in a safe, quiet area in Nairobi. They picked us up from the airport. They also include breakfast, high tea, dinner and an excursion to one of many nearby attractions if you like. We always like...

Thank you Greg H! This is high praise indeed from someone who is clearly a safari aficionado! Thank you for making Giraffe Manor your Nairobi hotel of choice, we appreciate your loyalty and, even more so, your enthusiasm for sharing your impressions here.

What a place! We stayed here one night at the end of our safari and as amazing as our safari had been, Giraffe Manor is just exceptional! We had Betty's room so we had the advantage of feeding the giraffes from our balcony before going down to the breakfast room. You have not lived until you have had one of...

My mom and I stayed two nights in Giraffe Manor near the beginning of our trip to Kenya. What an experience! The photos you see online are indicative of what you will experience-not just photos take. At the perfect moment. Giraffes are there in the morning for a good morning kiss and treat, pop their heads in throughout breakfast and...

My family and I stayed at the Giraffe Manor in Nairobi in December of 2016. Would we stay at the hotel again? Yes. Would we recommend it to friends? YES!!!!!!

I've been thinking of a way to write a review without bashing the manor. The experience in itself is one of a kind. I don't know of anywhere in the world where you can get so much one on one time with the giraffes or really any animal. I would say that this is the best place for someone who...
