There’s a one of a kind boutique hotel located in Kenya, between Nairobi and the Ngong Hills Nature Reserve. There’s something very special about it. The hotel is reminiscent of 1930’s grandeur with art deco features, elegant furnishings, four-poster beds, green gardens, terraces, and beautiful courtyards, but that’s not what makes it so special.The property is on 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest. In 1974, animal-activists Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville purchased the property and developed the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife to rear and re-introduce Rothschild giraffes to the wild.
Guests enjoy full-board during their stay, which includes all meals and most drinks. But the coolest and most unique thing about the hotel…
…is that giraffes freely roam about! There are ten giraffes that live on the property!
Warthogs live here too!
The giraffes might try to kiss you.
The friendly giraffes will pop their heads in for a visit several times during the day.
You can stroll across the lawn to the AFEW Giraffe Centre to learn about the endangered Rothschild Giraffe or take a guided walk around the sanctuary.
Have you ever had breakfast with a giraffe or two?
Giraffes come to eat carrots, Lucerne grass, and to lick salt blocks.
Guests are encouraged to feed them pellets and vegetables. So be prepared!
But sometimes they like to just help themselves.
The mansion has 10 elegantly designed rooms and high-vaulted ceilings.
It can accommodate up to 25 people.
All meals and some drinks are included with your room.
This is where breakfast is served.
You can also dine outside and enjoy the animals and the gorgeous view.
But if something is missing from your plate, then you know who took it!
What a great place!
You’ll probably never want to leave!
