The beauty and majesty of Africa are enchanting. In Nairobi, Kenya, visitors may experience this enchantment at Giraffe Manor, an exclusive hotel that has been attracting lodgers since the 1930s, approximately four decades after Europeans began to travel on holiday to the Motherland.
Located on twelve acres of private land within one hundred and forty acres of forest in the suburb of Langata, Giraffe Manor is an impressive sprawling estate. With its manicured landscaping, refined English décor and expansive courtyards, it is often compared to, as per the website of The Safari Collection, “… walking into the film, Out of Africa …”. The film, which was based on the book of the same name, was authored by Karen Blixen. The only suite of the twelve sleeping rooms at this luxurious living space was named in tribute to her.
