Built in 1932 and modelled on a Scottish hunting lodge, Giraffe Manor offers a pleasing mixture of traditional and modern elegance. With its two storey entrance hall, majestic staircase and immaculately furnished interiors, Giraffe Manor offers guests the unique chance to interact with the rare Rothschild Giraffe.
Inspired by the Manor's original 1930's decor, we have designed our 10 luxury double ensuite bedrooms with large four poster beds, antique furnishing, striking art decor and spacious bathrooms. The Finch Hatton's and Karen Blixen suites are suitable for families and have direct access to the courtyard.
Relax in our graceful sitting room with large picturesque windows through which you can appreciate views of the giraffes and the surrounding sanctuary. Our large veranda and terraces give you the opportunity to hand feed the friendly giraffes, as well as enjoy amazing views of the Ngong Hills.
Expect to be joined by guests for breakfast; lunch and dinner. Breakfast is served in the sun room, with its enormous windows flung open in welcome of the giraffe that come and join you. Dinner is a cosy affair as the drawing room fire is lit and guests and managers gather for evening drinks. You can either chose to have a candlelit hosted meal in the dramatic wood panelled dining room or at your own table under the stars surrounded by the glow created by lanterns and candles on the terrace.
Our chef will prepare home cooked meals that will make your stay at Giraffe Manor even more memorable. Get a taste of traditional meals with a touch of modern edge such as our Mount Kenya Smoked Trout pate, fillet of beef or watamu red snapper.
