Giraffe Manor, Kenya
13 May 2017 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Imagining waking up in the morning and having a Giraffe popping his head through your bedroom window at breakfast.

On the the edge of Nairobi National Park this is exactly what the guests encounter at breakfast time. Giraffe Manor is a 1930s hunting lodge run by Tanya and Mikey Carr-Hartley, fourth generation white Kenyans. The plumbing might be creaky and they work hard to keep the lodge running and the giraffes leave the gusts awestruck.

However Giles and Monica know that giraffes visiting the lodge have limited appeal, they also fly to a remote outpost, the Sasaab Lodge set within 82,000 acres of land owned by the Samburu tribe who receive a fee for each guest that stays there. It also provides employment for the local tribal people but it does mean they have to reach expectations of international visitors such as hanging mirrors and pictures straight.

These safari lodges in Kenya are not cheap places to stay. These days they have to be luxurious and meet visitors demands. Monica finds out when taking guests out to a safari, they expect fine food and drink to be provided.

Once upon a time, the guests ate whatever animal the ranger accompanying the group killed and cooked.

It is nice to see that luxury travel brings money and jobs for the locals in Nairobi and for the Samburu people.
