Giraffe Manor

Giraffe Manor is Nairobi’s most iconic historical building, dating back to the 1930s, and is reminiscent of the early days of Europeans in East Africa. Whilst the building itself resonates with the past, very much present is the herds of resident Rothschild giraffe who tend to visit the Manor in the mornings and evenings to greet guests and sniff out some snacks before venturing out into their sanctuary of 140 acres.  Located in the suburbs of Nairobi in a unique area of preserved wilderness, Giraffe Manor offers an exceptional and unique experience, and an elegant retreat from the excitement of the capital city.

From 1974, Giraffe Manor was the home of Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville, whose lifelong ambition became the preservation of this beautiful and threatened species of giraffe. When Jock died in 1984, and Betty returned to the USA she opened her house – now The Giraffe Manor – to visitors. The Giraffe Manor was run by Rick and his wife Bryony for twenty five years. In March 2009, the Manor was bought by Tanya and Mikey Carr-Hartley.

There are six en-suite bedrooms at the Manor including the Karen Blixen suite which is suitable for families, is an exclusive boutique hotel catering for the discerning traveler to Nairobi. Attentive, experienced managers cater for every guest’s need. To find all this in the suburbs of an African city makes it all the more captivating.
