We loved every last moment at Giraffe Manor! The food, the accommodations, the staff, and of course the giraffes! It really is an extraordinary experience, and if you have the opportunity it's not to be missed. Listen to the staff's instructions carefully about interacting with the giraffes. They know each giraffe's personality; some are friendlier than others, and any giraffe can send you to the hospital in a split second, if you don't follow their instructions.
My husband, daughter and myself stayed in the Finch Haddon suite which was perfect for our needs, although the mattresses were a tad hard for our liking. Very beautifully decorated, terrific en-suite bathroom, fireplace, and just steps from the dining area.
The food was excellent, and it was really cool having the parlor area with the self-service bar - fires were lit and we just hung out there with the other guests, sharing stories and learning about each other.
Shout out to Tony, the GM, just for being the terrific guy that he is and for not judging us for my husband's RBF. :D
I have wanted to visit Giraffe Manor since I was younger and saw it on a travel special. Never in my life did I think as a kid I would actually get to visit. Dreams do come true, my husband and I stayed here for one night before our safari and it was an experience I will never forget! We can not say enough about our stay, it was unbelievable, the staff is beyond amazing. They made sure we were comfortable and went above and beyond to make sure we got the pictures we wanted. We stayed in the betty suite and I don't want to brag but I feel like it was the best room in the house, we had a great balcony to enjoy watching the Giraffe. I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning. Everyone needs to stay here and bring the innocence back into their life.
