Checking Into This Giraffe Hotel! This Amazing Travel Adventure Is Now Open Again!


Well, hello there! Nice looking fellow! He needs to pass along some important information from some friends of ours:


Don’t Bogart That Giraffes’ Meatloaf!

That’s right, these Giraffes will join you for dinner! For all of you adventure travelers, here’s an amazing place to stay – as long as you don’t mind sharing your food with the locals!

Giraffe Manor safari

Welcome to iconic Giraffe Manor, located in Nairobi, Kenya – one of the most unique adventures you could ever experience!

And the great news is that Kenya is now open again to visitors – so this is back on my bucket list!

amazing safaris

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.

Check out the video!


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:

dangerous safari animals

“Don’t Run….Food Runs!”

It’s very true, and the title of a hilariously insightful book about Safaris, written by a tour guide!

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!”

If you want a less “exciting” adventure, one that is closer to home, you should know about this incredible wine tasting Safari – in Malibu!

Yep, Stanley the Giraffe is there to greet you – it’s all up in the mountains overlooking Malibu’s Pacific Ocean!

  9. I have been to Nairobi, back in 1983. I don’t think that hotel was operating then, but I did see a great many giraffes in the wild during a tour of Kenya and Tanzania.
    Best wishes, Pete.
