There’s a really unique hotel nestled between Nairobi and the Ngong Hills Nature Reserve. This place holds something very special and unexpected for their guests.
The hotel is reminiscent of the 1930′s grandeur. Filled with with art deco features, elegant furnishings, vintage four-poster beds, beautiful gardens, terraces, and overlooking courtyards. The property itself is 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest.
This hotel is an iconic historical building dating back to the 1930s. In 1974, animal-activists Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville purchased this property to develop the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife. Their goal was to rear and re-introduce Rothschild giraffes to the wild.
Guests enjoy the all-inclusive hotel, which means all meals and most drinks are provided. But the most unusual and unique thing about the hotel is that…
…giraffes roam freely around! There are 10 giraffes who live on site!
Warthogs also call this hotel home too!
The giraffes may try to sneak in a smooch.
These friendly giraffes may pop in for a visit several times a day.
If you fancy, you can stroll across the lawn to the AFEW Giraffe Centre to learn about the endangered Rothschild Giraffe or take a guided walk through the sanctuary.
Have you ever had breakfast with a giraffe? Or perhaps two?
These giraffes will brunch with you, eating their own meal of carrots, Lucerne grass, and to lick salt blocks.
Guests are encouraged to feed them their pellets and vegetables. Get ready!
Of course, giraffes may like your food better.
The mansion has 10 elegantly designed rooms with high-vaulted ceilings.
Rooms can accommodate up to 25 people.
All meals and some drinks inclusive with your room.
This is the breakfast area.
You can also dine outside and enjoy the animals with the amazing view.
But if something is missing from your romantic dinner, then you know who took it!
Kids love this place!
You’ll probably never want to leave either!
