This Secluded Hotel Has A Magical Secret… Wait Until The 3rd Photo.

There’s a really cool boutique hotel located between Nairobi and the Ngong Hills Nature Reserve. There’s something very special about it. It’s reminiscent of 1930’s grandeur with art deco features, elegant furnishings, four-poster beds, green gardens, terraces, and beautiful courtyards. The property is on 12 acres of private land within 140 acres of indigenous forest.

The hotel is an iconic historical building dating back to the 1930s. 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!
