In Kenya, between Nairobi and the Ngong Hills Nature Reserve, there is a one of a kind boutique hotel. Giraffe Manor is reminiscent of 1930’s grandeur with art deco features, elegant furnishings, four-poster beds, green gardens, terraces, and beautiful courtyards. What makes it so special? The property is on 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest.
Animal-activists Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville purchased the property in 1974and developed the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife to rear and re-introduce Rothschild giraffes to the wild.
Guests are able to enjoy all-inclusive amenities during their stay, such as all meals and most drinks. That’s not the coolest and most unique thing about the hotel…
…giraffes freely roam about! There are ten giraffes that live on the property!
The giraffes may try to kiss you.
The friendly giraffes pop their heads in to visit several times during the day.
The AFEW Giraffe Centre is close by where you can learn about the endangered Rothschild Giraffe or you can take a guided walk around the sanctuary.
How about breakfast with a giraffe or two?
Giraffes like to eat carrots, Lucerne grass, and to lick salt blocks.
Guests are encouraged to feed them pellets and vegetables.
But the giraffes sometimes just help themselves.
There are 10 elegantly designed rooms and high-vaulted ceilings in the mansion.
It accommodates 25 people.
Meals and some drinks are included with your room.
This is where breakfast is served.
You may also dine outside and enjoy the animals and the gorgeous view.
If you find out that something is missing from your plate, you know who took it!
What a beautiful place!
You will not want to leave!
This looks like a place you may want to add to your bucket list for sure. If you think this is a cool place to stay, share it with your friends.
