Luxury Hotel Complete with Live Giraffe...


I'm a sucker for a unique hotel (here and here) and I know this one has done the rounds, but it's too good not to add to my wishlist of unique hotels. So, welcome to  Giraffe Manor,
the luxury hotel in Kenya where you can have breakfast and dinner with friendly giraffes! If you're an animal lover, I suspect you might just be freaking out right now...


Located 20km outside of Kenya’s diverse capital Nairobi, Giraffe Manor is a five-star hotel with a resident herd of Rothschild Giraffes that roam the 12 acre private property freely – meaning they’ll poke their heads through your luxury bedroom window for a friendly chat whenever they want! 




The residence was built in the 1930s by the British Mackintosh family (the ones that make toffees), and has a giraffe centre that was set-up in 1979 as a breeding centre to boost a then endangered population. It has now expanded into conservation and educational programs for Kenyan school children and all the profits of the hotel go towards the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife.



It's a plush place to stay with rooms kitted out with four-poster beds, cool white linens, wooden floors and not surprisingly go for about $380 – $500 per person per night depending on the room –which means unless you're stinking rich like Mick Jagger, Ewan McGregor or Richard Branson, who have all stayed here, you might need to win the Lottery before checking in.




Coincidentally, Giraffe Manor is located next door to the former home of Karen Blixen, the Danish author of Out of Africa, now a museum in a stunning garden and a baby orphan elephant sanctuary!

  3. Only those that are ready to be part of the new wave needs to be told this secret. Winning the lottery is divine, but you have to strive to all perfection and directions to win the lottery. Winning the lottery is one of the best thing in life, i am a lottery winner, but before i fall into the light , i had some very bad experience in playing the lottery, because my life was at stake and almost useless, then lottery seems to be the only means that come into my head, i played the lottery steadily over 5 years , but i could not win more than $300, but i always see people winning millions of dollars, and because of that i extended my search for victory. Along the line i was been misled, until i was searching for help online, then i found this powerful spell caster called Dr.Fabo. And he promise to help me win the lottery. I contacted Dr.Fabo and he did his normal work, after the spell and all i finally won the lottery of $15,000,000. I am a happy woman today because i am a millionaire, and every mature minded human, that wants to use this method to win the lottery as well should as well contact DR.Fabo without hesitating.

  4. It is indeed true that lottery spells are real for more than 4 years i have been active in playing the state farm lottery amongst others and had only won once and it was a small win. I came across posts of how spell casters help with lottery wins and i decided to give it a try but still no luck until a friend gave me the email address of Dr Zadson just 6 months back after i contacted him i was given some instructions and i adhered to them and in the last 5 months i had won over $7,000,000.00 in all on several occasions and this was too wonderful a miracle to be quite about and i decided to tell the world of this great ambassador. Contact him with details below for immediate and active lottery spells and have your own testimony
