Kenya 2020: Giraffe Manor


There is usually a waiting list of over a year to reserve a room at Giraffe Manor, so to get two rooms for the four us at such short notice demonstrated that it was simply meant to be! Paul and I were hosted upstairs in the spacious Betty’s Room which had a huge bath and a balcony frequented by the giraffes for snacks. Our friends were downstairs in the Lynn Superior Room. The giraffes arrived at Lynn’s for a midnight feast just as we were heading to bed – great excitement and a wonderful way to start our Kenyan adventure!

This historic Manor House dates back to the 1930’s when it was built to emulate a Scottish Hunting Lodge. We only arrived at 10pm but the Staff were welcoming with all Covid precautions taken and a delicious dinner was served.

After a great night’s sleep in the four poster bed we were up at 6am ready to enjoy breakfast with the giraffes. These giraffe know what to expect and were waiting for me to feed them from the balcony. SO exciting to see the one day old new born giraffe too. Each couple has a butler who positions the giraffes perfectly and snaps away to try and get you that perfect insta moment! Breakfast was delicious!

🙂 Bucket List, Once in a Lifetime – it is exactly as you imagine it. JUST DO IT!

🙁 Not a bad word to say – everything was PERFECT!

Top Tip: Try and make the most of your time here and enjoy the afternoon tea which is also included – we arrived too late. DRESS UP for breakfast – your photos will stay with you forever!
