Friendly Giraffes Made This Kenyan Hotel A Place Everyone Wants To Visit
It’s always hard to find a good venue to have the all-important honeymoon at. The same goes for a place to visit as part of a family vacation. If you are looking for something adventurous and you have the cash to spare, there is a little treasure in Africa you might be interested in visiting.
Have you ever wanted to visit the continent of Africa, but aren’t sure where to go for that dream safari? In the city of Nairobi, Kenya, you will have the chance to explore a 12-acre plot of wildlife preserve at a place known as Giraffe Manor. It is located in the Langata suburb of the major city.
First built in 1932, the style of the hotel is very reminiscent of Kenya’s colonial days. After a transfer of ownership, the Giraffe Manor became a sanctuary for the endangered Rothschild Giraffes.
The 10 ‘stately’ rooms and service rival even the most lavish establishments. The one thing this place has that others don’t is that you might get giraffes as guests during an afternoon lunch. With only hotel guests allowed to be in the manor, you’re almost guaranteed to get the giraffe experience.
If you’re in the right room, you might even get a wake-up call from one of the Rothschild Giraffes.
Staying at Giraffe Manor is about $620 per person and includes full room and board. The hotel also offers guests communal lodge-style dining, or more intimate meals if preferred. With a ride from the airport included, it’s a tempting place to vacation or even just visit. The experience is guaranteed to be like no other.
The best part about the place? It’s right near the Nairobi International Airport. And the taxi ride to and from is all part of the Giraffe Manor experience.
