Our amazing stay at Giraffe Manor, Kenya

Giraffe Manor Kenya It is a new year, and we have had such a wonderful 2013. After traveling to Namibia, we decided to cut across to East Africa. We chose Kenya and we were not disappointed as the Giraffe Manor offered us more than we expected. Our amazing stay at Giraffe Manor, Kenya is what inspired us to consider visiting Kenya again.
Giraffe Manor is a small English style hotel and associated giraffe center in the suburb of Karen in Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. We were warmly welcomed by a staff on our arrival, who then took us through a brief tour Amazing Giraffe Manor, Kenyaof the Manor and a bit of the history as we stole glances of the establishment. When it was all said and done, we were lucky enough to get Marlon as our room for the rest of the time we were going to be there. Tammy and Phil were given a room called Daisy. The room’s were excellently furnished and offered a spectacular view. The rooms are also well equipped with accessories such as torches, hairdryers, and toiletries by Eco Fresh, safes, giraffe pellets, etc.
I will not forget the wonderful experience we had of interacting with the Rothschild giraffes from our bedroom windows and also during breakfast. The fun we had with feeding the giraffes made us extend our stay for three more nights. This was thrilling for all of us but Tammy could not stop talking about the food, it was out of this world. She would come back to Giraffe Manor over and over just for the food. We had all the Giraffe Manor, Kenyameals apart from breakfast on the courtyard just between the Giraffe Manor and the main house.
During our stay, we were also able to visit other places nearby with the help of tour vehicles from the Manor that took us for sightseeing. We visited the Elephant Orphanage and the Nairobi National Park located in Karen. We also visited a community jewellery workshop called Kazuri Beads and bought some ornaments. We also took with us a few souvenirs from Karen Blixen Museum, a sculpture gallery.
Our amazing stay at Giraffe Manor, Kenya is worth remembering. It is also a trip that we hope to make the next time we visit Kenya or Africa.
