If you follow me on Instagram, you may have come across this very cool picture of Jarrad Seng an Australian photographer, having breakfast with a Giraffe poking its head inside the breakfast room to his table for something to eat. The photo is quite striking and I wondered where this picture was taken. With a bit of research I came across The Giraffe Manor which is located in Nairobi. The manor was originally built in 1932, with the style of a Scottish hunting lodge. It is set on 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest in the Langata suburb of Nairobi. The Giraffe Manor was founded by conservationist Betty Leslie-Melville and her husband Jock. With giraffes now facing a silent extinction, the herd of Rothschild giraffes live permanently on the grounds and surrounding area and regularly come to be fed through the large windows. You can stay for the night in one of the 10 rooms or book a safari. Take a look at the pictures and you will definitely add it to your wish list. Price: $550 per night including full board and airport and local transfers.
TRD: I may just buy myself a safari hat for the occasion looking like Tintin.
Did you know: Giraffes can stand during sleep and only sleep 10 mins and 2 hours per day, the shortest sleep requirement for mammals.
