Giraffe Manor is one of the most popular accommodation choices in the whole of Eastern Africa. Full of character and steeped in history, its ivy-clad buildings are set in 12 acres of private land and are surrounded by 140 acres of indigenous forest. Reminiscent of its 1930s "Out of Africa" heydays, it is named for its resident herd of Rothschild giraffe that often pop in for a visit.
Giraffe Manor is an exclusive boutique hotel in the Langata suburb of Nairobi Kenya and the accommodation of choice before or after a Masai Mara or a Serengeti safari.
As one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings, Giraffe Manor has extraordinary appeal, it is set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest and harks back to the 1930s when European visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris. With its stately façade, elegant interior, verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards. However, a fascinating experience about Giraffe Manor is its herd of resident Rothschild giraffe who may visit morning and evening, sometimes poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.
The hotel’s 12 rooms each have their own distinct personality, elegant furnishings and art deco features.
A short stroll across the lawns takes you to the AFEW Giraffe Centre where you can learn about these beautiful endangered creatures and take a guided walk around the sanctuary. The Manor can arrange a variety of optional local excursions for you.

We booked one of the most beautiful trips we've ever had through Safari.com. The service was excellent and uncomplicated. They catered to special requests, booked additional flights, and the accommodation (Simbavati River Lodge) was simply unbelievably beautiful. Our expectations were far exceeded, and we can only recommend Safari.com. We will definitely book our next vacation through Safari.com and recommend it to our friends. Many thanks, Nelia & Catherine!
