Giraffe Manor, Kenya
Located near Nirobi, the Giraffe Manor is a unique hotel with twelve luxury rooms which are all en-suite, filled with antique furniture and tastefully decorated with gorgeous pieces of art.
The manor is home to a variety of animal life including Bushbuck (a specie of antelope), Dik Diks (small antelope) and Warthogs, plus some 180 species of birds. Its also home to giraffe residents, endangered Rothschild species that can only be found in East Africa.
From 1974, Giraffe Manor was the home of Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville, whose lifelong ambition became the preservation of this beautiful and threatened species.
At this successful breeding centre you can observe, hand-feed or even kiss the giraffes from a raised circular wooden structure, and it is a remarkable and unique experience. Some Giraffe might put their heads through the windows at breakfast, making it an unforgettable memory as they are always keen to be hand fed!
