Giraffes have purple-blue tongues. If you stay over at the exclusive Giraffe Manor in Kenya, you’ll be able to see this for yourself, up close. This stately colonial-era mansion, set in beautiful gardens within the Langate Forest, sits elegantly on the outskirts of Nairobi and is home to a herd of Rothschild’s giraffe.
As an exclusive boutique hotel on 12 acres of private land, it’s not a cheap option by any means. However, a splurge at the beginning or end of your trip makes sense when you’ve saved a bundle on your safari package.
Giraffe Manor is the perfect place to spend a night or two before/after setting off to one of Kenya’s iconic national parks on safari, like our Masai Mara, Serengeti and Ngorongoro Lodge Safari or Kenyan Game Parks 4×4 Lodge Safari.
Accroding to Africanbudgetsafari.com, Kenya’s Giraffe Manor has had plentiful publicity lately and is a hugely popular African travel destination. It’s one of those ‘Bucket List’ places. With its popularity come beautiful images scattered across social media and publications worldwide … ‘giraffe kisses’, giraffes putting their heads through the window to gaze at you while you eat your breakfast and the like. It’s hard to believe they’re real!
