Giraffe Manor

“The most unforgettable breakfast in the world.” This is how Giraffe Manor begins by presenting the experience that guests can have at the hotel. Giraffe Manor is situated in Kenya in Nairobi, within 56 hectares of indigenous forest. The location of the hotel makes Giraffe Manor distinct from several other accommodations, however, the fact that it has a group of Rothschild Giraffes visiting guests in the morning makes the stay a “fascinating” experience.
