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. This elegant, personally hosted hotel is famous for its herd of resident Rothschild's giraffe who visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat. With its stately façade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces, and delightful courtyards, Giraffe Manor offers a rich blend of comfortable accommodation and highly trained and friendly staff. It is the only place in the world where you can enjoy the breathtaking experience of feeding and photographing a giraffe over the breakfast table or at the front door.
Giraffe Manor is a peaceful retreat to start or end a safari in East Africa and has become an icon of Nairobi’s historical landscape.
Located in the leafy suburbs of Langata on a 140 acre sanctuary, Giraffe Manor offers a unique opportunity to meet the resident giraffe, all of whom are of the endangered Rothschild’s species.
Close up encounters with the semi-habituated giraffe as they put their heads through the windows at breakfast creates an unforgettable memory for guests. The inquisitive giraffe are always keen to be hand fed!
The Garden Manor is the newer part of Giraffe Manor built in 2011. The Garden Manor was created to provide accommodation exclusively for guests of our collection, so that the main house can be kept as open and accessible to all. Our resident giraffes regularly enjoy visiting both parts of the manor for treats. This means that you can book the Garden Manor if you are also booking another one of our properties for the same group.
