Our stay at Giraffe Manor really made our time in Nairobi; the children were thrilled, and in truth, so were we. We were made to feel so welcome, and the relaxed ‘house party’ feeling was great after all the nights we had spent in hotels. We thought the staff were wonderful, and the fun of feeding the giraffes dispelled all our misgivings about adding extra nights to our trip
Another enormous highlight to our trip (actually there were quite a few – the Serian entertainment being way up there on that list too) was Giraffe Manor. I know you thinks it’s a gimmick, but it was also probably one of our most favorite stops – especially for Anna and Lily (and my mom). That was an absolute highlight and a good way to end the trip. The Manor is stunning, the food was out of this world and I would call it a must stop if one is going through Kenya (especially with children.) It probably meant more to me as well because I read the book “Raising Daisy Rothschild.” It was really expensive, but totally worth it. My mom wants to go back to Kenya just to go there. We really loved it.
Another unique wildlife experience that lives up to its reputation. Stately rooms, fine food and wine, and unforgettable opportunities to get up close and personal with Rothschild giraffes. We stayed one night to close out the Kenya leg of our safari, and it was the perfect coda to the trip. You get three chances to interact with the giraffes - afternoon tea (around 6pm), morning feeding from your rooms (from certain rooms only, around 6am) and breakfast in the dining rooms (from 6.30-8am or so). Because the number of guests is limited, it really feels special and you get as much time as you want with the magnificent giraffes.
