Imagine waking up in Nairobi, Kenya. You stroll down the stairs of a boutique 1930s hotel, modeled on a Scottish hunting lodge, to have breakfast—with giraffes.

Giraffe Manor is an iconic African hotel set on 12 acres of private land, as well as a free-roaming sanctuary for endangered Rothschild giraffes with 140 acres of indigenous forest.
