Accommodation

Below is some of the wonderful accommodation to include on your journey.

Hemingways Hotel £££££

  • Kenya
  • City
  • Wellness and Spa

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.

Giraffe Manor £££££

  • Kenya
  • Boutique
  • Unusual

Giraffe Manor is a beautiful, eccentric country house located in an upmarket suburb of Nairobi, a hop and skip from major attractions. Originally built in 1932, and saved from dereliction in 1974 by US conservationist Betty Leslie-Melville and her husband Jock. Giraffe Manor has two main buildings – the original Manor House with six bedrooms, and Garden Manor, a four-bedroom annexe, all beautifully decorated. There aren’t many places you stay where a giraffe is likely to pop its head through the window and steal a bit of your breakfast.
