STAY AT Giraffe Manor
GETTING THERE We’ll meet you at Jomo Kenyatta International airport and bring you to Giraffe Manor in the leafy Nairobi suburb of Langata, for a sumptuous three-course lunch.
EXPERIENCE This classic ivy-clad manor house is home to a tower of Rothschild’s giraffes that live in the grounds of the hotel. The large veranda and terrace is perfect for feeding them by hand*. These giraffes are all wild and there’s a breeding and conservation programme at the Giraffe Centre located in Giraffe Manor’s grounds, which we invite you to visit. There’s lots to do here including visiting the Karen Blixen Museum, dedicated to the great Danish explorer and a visit to the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust where you can meet orphaned elephants. We also offer the chance to shop for art and gifts from local Kenyan designers, artists and craftspeople.
* The giraffe at Giraffe Manor are wild and therefore we cannot guarantee interaction with them at any given time.
