Watch This: Why Breakfast With Giraffes Beats the Breakfast Buffet
Breakfast with a giraffe, anyone?
It’s hard to watch this video without smiling ear to ear. Or immediately booking a trip to visit Giraffe Manor.
Guests at Kenya’s Giraffe Manor enjoy one of the most iconic properties in the country: set on 12 acres of private land in Nairobi, it’s the best way to get up close and personal with African wildlife. That’s right, the property is not only the perfect destination for travelers looking for an authentic Kenya adventure — it’s also home to a herd of Rothschild Giraffe, which roam the property and can often be found poking their necks into windows in hopes of getting a treat.
Giraffe Manor became a giraffe sanctuary shortly after its purchase by Betty and Jock Leslie-Melville in 1974, when they agreed to save the only remaining Rothschild giraffes in Kenya from slaughter by relocating them onto this property. Since then, Giraffe Manor has not only served as a hotel, but also as a breeding program aiming to revive the endangered Rothschild Giraffe population. While the acres of land offer the giraffes a home, the onsite Giraffe Center, run by the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife, educates visitors on the importance of saving this endangered animal.
All stays at the Giraffe Manor include the opportunity to feed and meet giraffes, Wi-Fi, luxury accommodations, all meals and most drinks.
