Most hotels that boast about their wildlife populations try their hardest to keep the animals separated from their guests. Not so at Giraffe Manor. Set on 12 acres of private land, surrounded by 140 acres of indigenous forest, but still only 20 km outside the city center, this exclusive hotel is known for its resident herd of Rothschild Giraffe. No matter if you're relaxing in one of the 10 double ensuite bedrooms or two suites, enjoying a candlelit dinner outside, or simply eating your morning breakfast, you can expect to see and encounter some of the spotted fellows, who may even try to nab a bite for themselves. Speaking of food, the on-site chef cooks meals consisting of updated versions of traditional local meals with three-course affairs for lunch and dinner — just be aware that the giraffe aren't the only creatures that will be eyeing your food, as warthogs, bushbuck, dik dik, and more than 180 species of birds also call the grounds home.
