Giraffe Manor is located just outside Kenya’s capital of Nairobi and is situated amongst 140 acres of indigenous forest. Modeled after a Scottish hunting lodge, Giraffe Manor boasts views of Mt. Kilimanjaro to the south and the Ngong Hills to the west.
Having lost much of their natural habitat in western Kenya, two highly endangered Rothschild giraffe were moved to the estate in 1974 where future generations have thrived to this day.
Visitors to Giraffe Manor can enjoy the unique experience of feeding and photographing the giraffe from the breakfast table. The Giraffe Center (AFEW Kenya) is also located on the property and, according to the website, was built “so that Kenyan school children could learn conservation/ecology and feed giraffe eyeball to eyeball!”
Giraffe Manor makes for a great place to get acclimated upon arriving in Nairobi, Kenya.
