The most fascinating part of staying at Giraffe Manor is how close you will come to the resident giraffes. They visit morning and evening and are often seen poking their long necks into the windows in the hope of a tasty treat. Where else can you feed a giraffe from your breakfast table? Whatever your age, being so close to these surprisingly tame gentle giants is exhilarating.
You will have a choice of staying in the original 1930s manor house or in the Garden Manor, which is a smaller replica of the original house. The Karen Blixen Suite has a mezzanine which will sleep two under 12s in twin beds; and Kelly’s Room can be configured as a triple room, too. The 12 bedrooms are all individually designed, with art deco features and have en suite facilities; some have private verandas or balconies.
Try the traditional afternoon tea with dainty sandwiches, cakes, and pastries on the front lawn; but make sure you leave space for the delicious and inventive dinner served in the dining room by candle light, with all drinks included.
