I need to pass along some important information from a friend of mine:
Don’t Bogart That Giraffes’ Meatloaf!
That’s right, here’s an amazing place to stay – as long as you don’t mind sharing your food with the locals!
Welcome to iconic Giraffe Manor, located in Nairobi, Kenya – one of the most unique adventures you could ever experience!
There is an incredible company called “The Safari Collection”, and they run
Giraffe Manor, one of Nairobi’s most iconic buildings – here is how they describe it: “set in 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi and with verdant green gardens, sunny terraces and delightful courtyards, it harks back to the 1930s when European visitors first flocked to East Africa to enjoy safaris.”
The most fascinating thing about Giraffe Manor is not its beautiful façade or elegant interiors: it’s the herd of resident Rothschild giraffe. These beautiful creatures often visit morning and evening, poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat, before retreating to their forest sanctuary.

Thanks to “The Safari Collection” for posting this on youtube – what an amazing video! I have a lifelong goal of going on safari, and if I do, this will be on my itinerary!
And of course, if you go on safari, remember one very important rule:
Don’t Run! Food Runs!
Here is a link to my story about some of the most entertaining stories told by a seasoned safari guide – including the most important rule ever: “don’t run! FOOD runs!”
It makes sense: a wild animal sees movement as something to chase – and eat! And if you want to read more about the wilds of Africa, check out this story I posted about an amazing African Adventure!
