Here is a fun story The Morning Crew talked about one day this week on the show!
Breakfast with a side of super-sized wildlife? Yes, please.
Here are a couple of common New Year’s resolutions: travel more and spend more time in the great outdoors.
Giraffe Manor, which might be one of the most unique hotels in the world, lets you do both — and a leetle bit extra. Located on twelve acres of private land within a 140-acre forest on the outskirts of Nairobi, Kenya, the boutique property feels perfectly enchanting.
But what really sets it apart from other African destinations is the herd of resident Rothschild giraffes you can’t help but encounter there. Literally, you can’t miss them.
The endangered animals tend to visit the hotel in the mornings and evenings and aren’t above poking their heads in to see what’s going on.
Across a lawn from Giraffe Manor is the AFEW Giraffe Centre, where guests can learn about the species, feed the animals, and take guided walks around the sanctuary (it’s open to the public).
Starting in 1974, Giraffe Manor was the home of Jock Leslie-Melville—a Kenyan grandson of the Scottish Earl of Leven—and his American-born wife, Betty, whose lifelong goal of preserving this threatened species earned her the nickname, the “Giraffe Lady.”
The hotel accommodates up to 25 guests within 10 luxury en-suite rooms. Rates start at $525 per night on a full board basis.
