If you like the idea of sharing your breakfast with giraffes popping their heads through the window, then you must certainly visit this place! Located in Kenya, just outside the city of Nairobi, Giraffe Manor is one of the country’s most iconic historical buildings and a boutique hotel like none other in the world. A magical place on 12 acres of land, the manor was built in 1932. It originally functioned as a home, but eventually the property was acquired by Jock and Betty Leslie Melville and was set up by AFEW (African Fund for Endangered Wildlife) as a breeding ground to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe. The property was preserved and left intact so that the giraffes are in fact living in the wild. For this reason, besides the giraffes, on the property most often than not you can spot other animals as well, including a large variety of birds, warthogs and even hyenas.
