Luxury Lodges: Kenya
$ $ $ $ $
Giraffe Manor is a peaceful retreat to start or end any safari in East Africa and has become an icon of Nairobi’s historical landscape.
Located in the leafy suburbs of Nairobi on a 140 acre sanctuary, Giraffe Manor offers a unique opportunity to meet the resident giraffes, all of whom are of the endangered Rothschild’s species.
Close-up encounters with the semi-habituated giraffes create an unforgettable memory for travelers. Guest favorites include enjoying breakfast as the giraffes pop their heads through the cafe windows, or enjoying high tea with the animals (warthogs included) by your side. The inquisitive giraffes are always keen to be hand-fed, and you’ll know each of their personalities and preferences by the end of your stay!

WHY WE LOVE IT:
It will come as no surprise that this is one of our favorite and most cherished bucket list destinations in Africa. But beware, the manor is often fully booked! If you are considering staying here, be sure to reach out as far in advance as possible. Insider Tip: If the main manor is fully booked for your travel dates, we can look at adding another Safari Collection property to your itinerary to allow you access to the Garden Manor. The Garden Manor is reserved for guests extending with Safari Collection lodges, so a few extra days on safari may be your ticket to Giraffe Manor!
