Our weary group of seven, family and friends, arrived in Nairobi after two weeks on safari in Tanzania & gorilla trekking in Rwanda. We were whisked to Giraffe Manor from the airport and all felt as though we had been transported to another world. You are the absolute best - the staff, the food, the accommodations - everything was perfect....

We were collected from Nairobi on time and taken to this beautiful home. Greetings made, we were shown around the property and given instructions on safety. The room was divine, the food of a high standard, the staff friendly and the giraffes, well what can I say? Our stay was at the end of a long safari, Botswana, Zimbabwe and...

This was hands down, a most amazingly unforgettable experience. I often read reviews before travel and bookings, but I rarely, if ever, write one. HOWEVER, Giraffe Manor is more than deserving of this review. My wife and I were not the average 1 or 2 night stay. We specifically flew to Nairobi just to stay at the Manor for the...
