Giraffe Manor, Nairobi

Giraffe Manor

Where to stay

Below you can see some of the wonderful places we have recommended for this journey.

Hemingways Hotel £££££

  • Kenya
  • City

This plantation-style property has 45 spacious suites, all overlooking the garden, towards the distant Ngong Hills. The design is classically stylish but set up in a such a way as to give the hotel a much smaller, more intimate atmosphere than the number of rooms might suggest. From the sweeping staircase that greets you on arrival, to the polished lobby and beautifully manicured gardens bursting with colour, Hemingways is the place to enjoy a few luxuries. The dining is considered some of the best in Kenya, with their famous steaks perfectly grilled over a trendy Josper charcoal oven.

The Emakoko £££££

  • Kenya
  • City

The Emakoko sits on Nairobi National Park southern edge – a safari lodge within easy reach of the city. Two rows of stone bungalows are built into a steep hillside, facing into the park and looking out over a winding river. Beside the river, tall trees dot the long grasses, which are occasionally trampled by a wandering hippo.
