If you are a fan of wild animals, particularly giraffes, you will definitely have the need to stay at the Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya. The gorgeous hotel is set on 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest. The manor was built in the 1930s and became famous for its resident herd of adorable and rare Rothschild Giraffes.  

The Giraffe Manor offers a once-in-a-lifetime experience that lets you interact with giraffes in a way that you wouldn't believe! The curious creatures poke their heads through the windows while you’re dining and even through your bedroom window while you might be getting dressed! The Giraffe Manor is also home to a number of other wild species, such as warthogs, bushbucks and over 180 species of birds.
