One of my best friends is getting married in Africa this Spring and while looking for hotels, I came across Giraffe Manor, a luxury boutique hotel located 12 miles outside of Nairobi. It has everything that I love in a place: character, nature, beauty and understated luxury. With a MAJOR plus: Giraffes. It was set up by the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife as a breeding and conservation center for the endangered Rothschild Giraffe. How cool it is to wake up in Kenya and be joined at breakfast table by illustrious hosts?! Check-in please!
