About Giraffe Manor
Dating back to the 1930's and based on a Scottish sporting lodge, Giraffe Manor has become one of Nairobi's most historical and iconic buildings.
Although Giraffe Manor is reminiscent of the early days of Europeans in East Africa, very much present, is the herd of Rothschild giraffe who spend their mornings and late afternoons up at the Manor greeting guests, while the rest of their day is spent roaming around their 140 acre sanctuary.
Giraffe Manor has just ten individually styled luxury bedrooms, two of which are family suites. The interior of Giraffe Manor is stylish, yet still keeping the heritage of a bygone area. One of the bedrooms hosts an original Art Deco bathroom a spectacular feature along with the grand wooden staircase that greets visitors on arrival, the manor is elegant an stylish and a wonderful place to stay in Nairobi.
Giraffe Manor offers a truly unique experience in the suburbs of Nairobi within easy reach of some of Nairobi's attractions including the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and The Karen Blixen Museum.
