Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel, set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi. As one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings, Giraffe Manor has extraordinary appeal, that harks back to the 1930s when European visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris. 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.

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.

Giraffe Manor accommodates up to 29 guests with 12 luxury en-suite rooms including the Karen Blixen suite, which is suitable for wheelchair access. Children of all ages are welcome. Boules and croquet are on hand at Giraffe Manor and kids can dodge the resident warthogs while challenging each other to a few rounds of these classic garden games. Our treatment room offers a selection of massage and beauty treatments designed to restore your body’s natural balance and soothe away your stresses.

Every day, there is a special trip to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust elephant and rhino orphanage, focused on the rescue and rehabilitation of milk dependent orphaned baby elephants and rhinos through to their ultimate reintegration back into the wild. Guests will get a behind-the-scenes look at the babies and work being done to complement the conservation, preservation and protection of wildlife including anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness and providing veterinary assistance to animals in need. Transfers from Giraffe Manor are included at no extra cost.

Included in your stay at the manor is access to the AFEW Giraffe Centre, which is a gentle stroll across the front lawn of the house. The centre has some interesting background information on the rare Rothschild’s giraffes and also a small nature trail that can be good for stretching your legs. Sightseeing vehicles are also available for local tourist attractions including the Karen Blixen and Nairobi Museums, Kazuri Beads, Matbronze gallery and more

"I've been traveling all over the world for twenty years, but my trip this month to Africa put together by your firm was the smoothest and best planned trip I've ever made. The various places we stayed were outstanding and the uniqueness of each location added to the charm and atmosphere of the trip.

"Thank you for a superb job of planning and organizing as everything went smoothly. The country of South Africa so captivated me that my husband and I are already planning a return trip next summer. The only thing to rival the bush and animals was the food. The experience of South Africa is like no other and its effect is difficult to express. I can only encourage others to make the venture."
