Where to begin! We were made very welcome by Tony the manager. A drink and then off to our suite- karen blixen. Beautiful 30's style house really. It felt very homely and comfortable. After lunch my husband fell ill- he stayed in bed for most of our stay. Staff were lovely and caring. Our first night we had a candle...

My husband and I stayed 2 nights here in 2011 and it was phenomenal. The food and service was incredible and the giraffe interaction was indescribable. The way the giraffes are free to come and go as they please made it perfect. They were building new rooms so it might be different now but if your considering going, do it!!!!!

Let me start by saying that this has been the #1 thing on my bucket list for 15 years. Which ultimately could have led to a big disappointment, but it absolutely exceeded all expectations. It was better than even my wildest dreams imagined. They provide transportation from the airport to the giraffe manor which is great, I always love when...

This is a beautiful and sumptuous hotel fit for a special occasion. The food was magnificent and the staff could not be more helpful. It was a wonderful experience to feed the gentle giraffes from your 2nd floor bedroom window and then again through the breakfast room windows. Mind the table decorations... the roses were eaten too! There's breakfast, lunch,...

There are simply no words to adequately describe staying here. Yes, all the prime photo-opping going on is a little over the top, but this place is over the top! This is in the top 3 of my travels of all time. Food was the best out of everywhere we stayed. We had the Daisy room. Was small, but beautifully...

Icannot explain how much this place will forever be in my heart. while the room was bit small and could use a little updating (stayed in jack room), the fact that a giraffe was knocking on my window at 6am made it so worthwhile! we had a dinner wtih all of the guests that was delicious one night and made...

I booked a stay at the Manor for myself and my adult daughter who truly loves giraffes. The entire experience from booking the stay with Juliet, to our arrival, the stay itself and our departure was seamless and beyond our wildest expectations. I had arranged airport pickup, breakfast, city tour and a visit to the David Sheldrake Wildlife Trust and...

I visited with my family in December 2014... it was a special occasion with our grandmother. The staff made us feel like royalty!
