It Looks Like A Creepy Hotel, But Wait Till You See Who Shows Up For Dinner.
It's not every day that one gets treated to the experience of encountering a giraffe -- and certainly not a chance to live, walk, and dine with them.
But that's exactly what you get at the Giraffe Manor, a small hotel in Nairobi, Kenya that allows guests to share the ground with a herd of endangered Rothschild giraffe. The property serves as both a tourist attraction and a conservation site, originally built as a home for Sir David Duncan in 1932. Now, this incredible place is a beacon of hope for these nearly-extinct animals. See the amazing photos from Giraffe Manor below.
Just 10 kilometers outside of Nairobi, you'll find a colonial house named Giraffe Manor. There, an incredible herd of rare Rothschild giraffes live in harmony with the people who stay.
The property is set on 12 acres of land with 140 acres of forest around it.
The herd was originally just five giraffes, brought to the property in 1974 as a part of a conservation project.
The property operates a breeding program, hoping to reintroduce the species back to Kenya.
Toward the end of last year the 14-year-old giraffe, Kelly, gave birth to a baby boy. The adorable newborn is Kelly's third calf at the centre.
