Luxury Holidays At Giraffe Manor

Dating back to 1932, Giraffe Manor was built in the style of a Scottish hunting lodge and continues to provide sophisticated accommodation for guests before and after a thrilling Kenyan safari. Today, the hotel retains many of its original features, but is perhaps now more famous for the Rothschild giraffes that frequent the property. These elegant creatures graciously wander through the hotel grounds and are a delight to watch; don’t be surprised if their curiosity results in them putting their heads through open windows to see what’s on the breakfast menu!

Split between the Manor House and the Garden Manor, no two rooms and suites at Giraffe Manor are the same. Some have four-poster beds, others have fire places, though all are named after famous people and places. Naturally this is a great place to bring children, but with just twelve rooms, demand often exceeds supply so you need to book early to avoid disappointment. Giraffe Manor is also a great base to explore some of Nairobi’s other famous attractions - including the Karen Blixen Museum and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, home to orphaned elephants.

Hotel Experiences

Giraffe Manor is located within a sanctuary for charming Rothschild giraffes. Whilst they are wild animals, the giraffes generally wander across the hotel gardens and interact with guests - it is not uncommon to see them peering in at your upstairs bedroom or with their heads through the windows at breakfast. Guests can visit the dedicated sanctuary, operated by the Africa Fund for Endangered Wildlife, to learn more about the important conservation work they do.


Giraffe Manor is justifiably popular with families, and children squeal in delight when a friendly giraffe's head appears through the window, seeking out what you're eating for dinner. The rooms vary in size, so we will be happy to assist you in finding the right room dependent on the age of your children. Giraffe Manor is not only a great base to learn more about the endangered Rothschild giraffes, but is also close to David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in which children can meet baby orphaned elephants.
