Giraffe Manor - Dine With Giraffes In NairobiGiraffe Manor  

The hotel is a converted manor house built in the 1930s in a Scottish hunting lodge style. It is part of a modern wildlife sanctuary located 20km from Nairobi.

The Rothschild Giraffes who live here are wonderfully tame. If you leave your window open, you could even wake up with one nibbling on your toes!

The sanctuary also contains over 150 acres of natural forest, and you will be able to see an incredible array of wildlife and tropical birds from the area.

There is a center where they save orphaned Elephant calves, raising them and reintroducing them to the wild. You can visit and watch the baby Elephants get fed and romp around in their pen. Adorable.

Excursions to Nairobi are arranged from the hotel so shopaholics won’t have to go through withdrawal amongst all this natural beauty.

There is also a manicured garden and a museum devoted to the famous author Karen Blixen. You can also take excursions into the Ngong hills - home of the Masai tribe.

Masai legends tell of an ancient giant who died there. His knuckles become the four mountain summits that prevail over these mystical hills.

The giraffes understand where the tasty snacks are coming from, so they sneak their heads through the windows.

You should hurry up to finish your breakfast, or the giraffe's long purple tongues will quickly eat up the remainings.

You will find a bowl of crunchy snacks in your suite that the giraffes love, so if they see you with it, you can prepare to feed them.
