The Giraffe Manor

Built in 1932 by Sir David Duncan, The Giraffe Manor was originally created as hunting lodge in Nairobi. The luxuriously furnished building was based on a Scottish lodge of the same nature and is set within view of both Mount Kilimanjaro and the Ngong Hills. Despite its less than wholesome history, the hotel now has a more noble function, in keeping with its regal look, and is used both as a guest house and giraffe sanctuary, allowing guests to get up close and personal with the giant animals, and even feed them through bedroom windows.
