Giraffe Manor

Nairobi


Giraffe Manor Location Map

Giraffe Manor is one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings - characterful, picturesque and enveloped in history like the foliage creeping over its brickwork. Set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi and with verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, it harks back to the 1930s when European visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris.

With its stately facade and elegant interior, Giraffe Manor has an extraordinary appeal. Guests remark that it’s like walking into the film Out of Africa - indeed, one of its suites is named after the author Karen Blixen.

The most fascinating thing about Giraffe Manor however is the herd of resident Rothschild giraffe. These beautiful creatures often visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.

The luxury suites have either large 4-poster beds or twin beds, antique furnishing, striking art decor and spacious bathrooms.The Karen Blixen suite has 2 bedrooms with an adjoining lounge area and a large balcony, making this ideal for families.

During your stay you can stroll across the lawn to the AFEW Giraffe Centre to learn about the endangered Rothschild Giraffe or take a guided walk around the sanctuary. From Giraffe Manor, sightseeing vehicles can also take you around the Langata area.
