They say that experiences are better than things, and we couldn’t agree more. Getting a passport stamp for a new destination is only a piece of what makes exploring the world such a memorable experience. In every country, there’s a must-see or do that travelers simply have to add to their itinerary to make the journey complete.
Kenya is known for its safaris, island gems and having some of the coolest influencers on the continent, but the thing that brings visitors to the capital of Nairobi – Giraffe Manor. The iconic boutique hotel, set on 12 acres of private land in the Langata suburb of Nairobi, is known the world over for the friendly (and photogenic) herd of resident Rothschild’s giraffe that roams the grounds enjoying morning breakfast with guests and giving out kisses.
Guests can experience the magic of Giraffe Manor year-round (except May when the manor closes for maintenance) but should make sure to book their stay a few months in advance since rooms sell out fast and the $620 a night per person can make it a big splurge.
