Sharing your breakfast with giraffes is the norm here at Giraffe Manor! Once an old colonial mansion, the now refurbished boutique hotel is famous for its habituated Rothschild giraffes, who regularly come to say hi through the large vintage windows. There is no arguing that Giraffe Manor offers one of the most memorable and special experiences in the whole of Kenya, let alone Nairobi, but with its reputation, comes popularity, and with only ten rooms, the manor’s lack of availability is its only downside!


Southwest of Nairobi and a 45-minute drive from Nairobi’s international airport, Giraffe Manor is set in the indigenous forest in the Langatta suburb. Its location and interaction with the giraffes makes it a well suited property to stay in for a night or two to tease you into your African safari. The nearby neighbourhood Karen, offers other animal interaction experiences and conservation projects, such as the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage.


The manor, with eight rooms and two suites, can accommodate up to 26 guests. Sat in a large area of bushy forest, Giraffe Manor has worked hard to create a spacious and airy feel to the property, offering guests leafy neat gardens, sunny courtyards, private suite verandahs, and a number of other open spaces to walk and relax in. Hence when it has full occupancy, which it regularly does, the manor rarely feels hectic or overly loud.


Giraffe Manor has eight double or twin rooms (named Betty, Lynn, Arlene, Daisy, Jock, Marlon, Helen and Kelly) and two family suites, both sleeping up to five. The named rooms each have their own distinct personality through style, art, colour and antique furniture. The rooms all have tall windows and come with a pot of complimentary giraffe nuts, the perfect combination for some friendly giants to pop their heads through and say hi!


Completely unique and one of the most memorable nights you'll ever have!
