Do you love Giraffes? Then this is a MUST DO for you in Kenya! This beautiful old manor house is set in forested gardens in the up market suburb of Langata, near to Nairobi and features classically decorated romantic rooms and a unique ‘breakfast room’ where the giraffes really enjoy joining you!
Giraffe Manor sits in 12 acres of private land with 140 acres of a natural wildlife sanctuary adjoining it. Other attractions in the area include the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage and the Karen Blixen Museum.
Wilson airport is about 20 minutes away so this is a perfect pre or post safari place to stay! There are six suites in the main manor house and 4 suites in the Garden Manor.
We are African Safari specialists and can tailor your own holidays to Giraffe Manor with a Kenyan safari or other locations in East Africa. Take a safari to the Masai Mara to see wild giraffes or combine with a walking safari with camels, camping in the beautiful Rift Valley in Laikipia or add on a beach stay on the Kenya coast, Lamu or Zanzibar.

The holiday was just incredible and couldn't have been any better in our wildest dreams. Thank you for all your assistance and your genius in putting this itinerary together for us to perfectly match what we wanted. Giraffe Manor was exceptional and even now feels like we were in a dream. It was great to know that every step of our holiday was taken care of including visiting our fostered elephant and meeting the last male Northern White Rhino on the planet.
What can I say? You did it again! From the night I arrived, being welcomed back to Hemingways in Nairobi (I felt like the King of Scotland again!), to the day I left everything was a complete delight. Elephant Watch Camp is lovely, the staff there are superb. They know all the elephants by name and there were around 9 families in the area, Saba had arranged a surprise sleep out for me with the warriors! I had some amazing leopard sightings around Samburu too ... all in all very sad to leave there.
Giving us a wealth of knowledge from her years spent working in Africa, Jules soon put together the perfect holiday for us. Just back home, the holiday already seems like ages ago but we really did have the trip of a lifetime! Thank you Jules for your arrangements and making it all work so well for us (especially talking to us whilst we were flying from the Mara, not sure which air strip to get off the plane!!)
What can I say ... you did it again! I loved every minute of my Kenya adventure. The Born Free Foundation anniversary safari was superb. We spent loads of time with Virginia McKenna whilst at Elsa's Kopje, she was full of 'hidden facts' about the lives of the Adamsons and I really enjoyed her company. Amboseli was fabulous. In Nairobi I enjoyed my visit to Daphne Sheldrick's Elephant Orphans and seeing my adopted baby later in the afternoon. So thank you again for your superb organisation and personalised 'conservation' based safari, I'm retiring soon so look out I will be travelling even more!
Our holiday to East Africa was perfect in every way. The early morning safari's were a special occasion...sitting in the middle of the plains surrounded by wildebeest, eating a cooked breakfast freshly prepared by the ranger, watching the sunrise is a truly unforgettable experience. Jules, thank you so much for giving us the experience and adventure of a lifetime. We will remember it always!
One of the things I have come to love about you, Jules, is that you listen and take on board what makes me tick, and then tailor the holiday to fit me, not just try to convince me to fit a holiday in a brochure!
