If you’ve ever dreamed of having breakfast with giraffes, here’s your chance.

The hotel dates back to the 1930s when European visitors flocked to East Africa in search of a safari experience. Its stately facade, elegant interior, sunny terraces and verdant green gardens are just the tip of the iceberg here, as an overnight stay ensures you will have a once-in-a-lifetime experience and an up-close look at the local wildlife. There are 12 rooms to choose from with their own distinct personality and decor, ranging from suites to twin rooms and featuring elegant furnishings and Art Deco features.

There’s a roof terrace overlooking the gardens in Daisy’s Room, Jack’s Room is a front facing room with an in-room fireplace, while the Karen Blixen Suite enjoys views from the ground floor. Wake to find the giraffes grazing outside your bedroom window, nibbling on the foliage that adorns the house. Your new friends will then swoop into the chandelier-filled dining room when it comes time for breakfast to say hello.

After a day of exploring the nearby attractions, you can come back to the hotel to unwind in front of a grand fireplace with a book. You’ll enjoy all-inclusive perks at Giraffe Manor, where all meals and most drinks such as house wines, spirits, beers and soft drinks are complimentary. You will also be whisked away to the area’s popular sightseeing hotspots on a chauffeured vehicle.
