Giraffe Manor is perfect for easing into a safari. A peaceful retreat, it has become an icon of Nairobi's historical landscape.

Always keen to be hand fed, these endangered Rothschild giraffe help to produce unforgettable holiday memories.

The Conservancy itself is a haven for more than 260 species of birds and 50 species of mammal.  Home to elephants, buffalo, Grevy zebra and greater kudu the area is also rapidly gaining a reputation for the big cats.
