Fans of nature and wildlife will undoubtedly have many animal-related experiences on their bucket list, and visiting Africa is bound to be in the top 10.
However, rather than settle for a safari, you could get up close and personal with giraffes in a unique hotel. Giraffe Manor in Nairobi is an incredible destination and is particularly popular with honeymooners, looking for something memorable.
Giraffe Manor is absolutely stunning, having just 12 rooms and set in 12 acres of private land, with its own forest.
The garden rooms are exquisite, with views over the giraffe sanctuary.
Having travelled this far, for the ultimate luxury, why not stay in a suite? Handmade Kenyan toiletries in the gorgeous bathroom add the finishing touch.
The food in the hotel is freshly prepared and served in a dining room with huge windows to allow your new giraffe friends to take a peek inside as you enjoy your evening meal.
Of course, the reason you are here is to see the giraffes, and you won’t be disappointed. In fact, you will have a much closer view of them than you could imagine, as they actually like to pop their heads through your bedroom window!
You will be given grass pellets, which are a delicacy for the giraffes and they will take them from your hand. The herd of Rothschilds giraffes roam freely and are quite comfortable with visitors, expecting you to give them a treat morning and evening.
After a delicious African breakfast, you can head to the terrace and watch these majestic creatures at your leisure.
The photo opportunities here are endless and having ticked this off your bucket list, you will have memories to look back on for a lifetime. The personal interaction with the giraffes is an experience not to be missed.
