Giraffe Manor Reviews
“Excellent interaction with giraffes. Rooms are nice and clean. Food is quite good. High tea and breakfast with the giraffes gives you plenty of opportunities to feed them, staff is quite helpful during interaction” – Lori K
“I’ve been lucky to travel the world but I have to say that Giraffe Manor is unique. The colonial style and interior design makes you feel completely disconnected. Nowhere else will you be as closed to giraffes!” – javetcarole
“I have heard of this place, but this was our first time staying at the Manor. The staff went out of their way to make the stay memorable. The giraffe were up close and personal. They were even joining us for breakfast….what a unique experience. The service and the food was outstanding. Wish the stay could have been longer.” – Stephen L
Nairobi is the largest city in Kenya and the capital city as well. It holds plenty of historical and cultural secrets and is famous for having the Nairobi National Park, the only game reserve in the world that is found within a city. Nairobi is a wonderful place to stay or a perfect base from which to explore the area.
