Giraffe Manor (Kenya)
Having a giraffe — unscientifically the most beautiful creature on earth — poke its head through a window to steal your breakfast is a breach of privacy you have to get used to at Kenya’s Giraffe Manor.
The 10-suite Nairobi hotel sits amid 140 acres of forest and has a family of endangered Rothschild giraffes as permanent residents.
Built in the 1930s, the hotel became home to a pair of Rothschilds in the 1970s.
Since then, several generations of giraffes have resided in the area and dedicated Giraffe Center was set up at the hotel by the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife as a breeding ground.
What makes this vacation even better?
The hotel food those giraffes keep trying to steal is some of the best in the city.
