Giraffe Manor View Rates, Discounted Prices - Book & Save Now!

The Giraffe Manor accommodates 14 guests, with the option of extra beds in rooms and is one of Nairobi's most iconic buildings, and with just six luxury rooms, one of the most exclusive places to stay in the city.

 

Located in the leafy suburbs of Langata, Giraffe Manor offers a unique opportunity to meet the eleven resident giraffe, all of whom are the endangered Rothschild species. The giraffe love to approach the sun room whilst guests enjoy their breakfast, and are always keen to be hand fed!

 

Giraffe Manor was built in 1932 by Sir David Duncan, is surrounded by 140 acres of its own park and forest thirty minutes from the centre of Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, with superb views of the Ngong Hills.

 

In 1974 Jock Leslie-Melville, grandson of a Scots earl, and his American wife Betty, who also founded the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW), bought the Manor. They then moved two highly endangered baby Rothschild giraffe to the estate, where they thrived and have produced several further generations of giraffe.

 

When Jock died, Betty decided to open her house, now called The Giraffe Manor, to visitors. It is the only place in the world where you can feed and photograph the giraffe over your breakfast table and at the front door, and even from a bedroom window.

 

Travelers from all over the world now make The Giraffe Manor part of their East African Safari. Some spend a week here and The Giraffe Manor has many repeat guests, who have become old friends. Personally hosted, The Giraffe Manor is an elegant and exclusive small hotel with a rich blend of welcoming accommodation, highly trained staff and one of Nairobi’s finest kitchens.

 

The Giraffe Manor also offers a uniquely untouched wilderness on the doorstep of one of Africa’s most cosmopolitan cities, the adjoining Jock Leslie-Melville Nature Education Centre, better known as the Giraffe Centre.

 

Guided walks through its primeval forest enable you to learn about traditional uses of the varied flora, view some of the 180 bird species and perhaps meet a warthog or bushbuck.

 

Giraffes live in the extensive grounds of the Giraffe Manor House and stick their heads through the windows in the hope of being fed. This charming old estate is renowned as a sanctuary for this endangered species and the animals have become so tame they try and enter the manor with you!

 

You are likely to see the giraffes staring into your second floor bedroom window early in the morning and at breakfast they stretch their entire head and neck through the breakfast room windows, and expect you to feed them some pellets.
