Giraffe Manor has to be one of our most thrilling, unusual and romantic experiences yet. Picture the scene: You and your loved one awake in a four-poster bed in a stately manor house feeling like characters from an E. M. Forster novel; safari, so good...
Then, in the middle of breakfast, an eighteen-foot giraffe pokes his head through the window, his eighteen-inch blue tongue licks the butter off your crumpet before scarpering off across the savannah with your cucumber sandwiches. Who says romance is dead?
Why's Giraffe Manor head and shoulders above the rest?
Well, without man-splaining, the giant clue is in the name; the manor part is a majestic, twelve bedroom 1930’s English house on the outskirts of Nairobi and nowadays it's an opulent boutique hotel, making it the ideal place to stay in the lap of colonial luxury.
But the most incredible thing about Giraffe Manor is its herd of resident Rothschild’s giraffe who’ll visit as the Jaffa-orange Kenyan sun rises and sets. These beautiful, intelligent and friendly animals come to collect treats and hugs before retreating to their forest sanctuary.
Tailor-made safaris to the Maasai Mara, helicopter trips, or gorilla safaris to The Congo are also available… or, for the ultimate Out of Africa adventure, you can stay in vintage tents on the savannah to witness Africa’s greatest wildlife show - the annual wildebeest migration.
This awe-inspiring manor is, without doubt, the best place in the world to make friends with these magnificent and sadly endangered beasts. You won’t get more up close and personal with Africa’s wildlife than this!
