Perfect for wellness, honeymoons and family retreats
Summer is only five minute away, in a manner of speaking, and the safari season is coming up in Kenya.
And speaking from experience, this is how to enjoy a trip to Kenya.
First of all, be sure to land in Nairobi, the capital city, this is the only city in the world with a national park. A perfect environment for your arrival!
We recommend that you stay at Giraffe Manor. While having breakfast or lunch, a few special guests will join you; giraffes! They delight guests when they put their heads through the windows or to come around to get fed on the terrace. Their tongues can grow up to twenty inches long and don’t worry! It is dried pellets they are looking for, not your pancakes at the manor.
About the Giraffes
They are a herd of eight resident Rothschild’s giraffes that tend to visit the Manor in the mornings and evenings to greet guests and share breakfast before venturing out into their sanctuary. Giraffe Manor’s informal atmosphere makes it one of the most popular places to stay in the country. There are 12 rooms in total for accommodation and the Manor can accommodate a maximum of 29 guests.
African Experiences and Activities
One of the activities one can enjoy is visiting orphan elephants at The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust which enables visitors to foster orphaned baby elephants that have often lost their family due to the ivory trade. One can watch the keepers feed and interact with them. The Trust is the Visitors can foster an elephant for $50 per year, helping to rehabilitate baby elephants that would otherwise perish. world’s most successful orphan elephant rescue and rehabilitation programme and the life-saving conservation work they carry out is incredible.
Guests can watch the babies enjoy their midday mud bath and feed, tumbling over each other in the red earth or playing football with their friends! If you adopt an elephant, it allows you the special privilege of visiting and you will see your baby elephant running in eagerly from the bush to be fed and put to bed. You can then spend time visiting each orphan in their stockade.
Stop for a Spa Experience
Next stop after the Giraffe Manor is the Maasai Mara and you can stay at Sasaab camp where you can watch the elephants come and drink water, as you are lounging in your room.
You can spend time with the Samburu, learning their culture, or ride on camels or indulge in activities for children.
The Maasai Mara is a great location to watch the annual most fascinating animal migration where tens of thousands of animals migrate from Tanzania to Kenya. It is extraordinary and unforgettable, with more than 1.2 million wildebeests on the move.
From Nairobi to Maaai Mara that will create unforgettable memories!
