Giraffe Manor




Someday I’m vacationing at the Giraffe Manor in Kenya.  As you may have gathered, the 1932 ivy-covered lodge shares the grounds with a herd of giraffes.  The friendly fellows often peek in the windows to say hello and you’re allowed to pet and feed them!  Is it just me or is this the coolest place on earth?

P.S. Thanks to my fabulous reader, Mackenzie, for telling me about it!

    Oh man this is making me nostalgic. I think giraffe manor was my 2nd or 3rd post on my blog back when I started it at the end of December! Seems like the most perfect vacation, doesn’t it?

    This is absolutely amazing. I SO need to go one day — have I ever mentioned that giraffes are one of my favorite animals? They’re so beautiful and graceful.

    I’ve never heard of it – so fab! The little one and I got to feed a giraffe at the Columbia, SC zoo last fall – she was so excited (and a little scared!) Such beautiful creatures!

    Ohmygosh! I just got off work or I would have gasped/squealed/commented earlier. I absolutely have to go here – it’s going on my bucket list. I have loved giraffes since I was 3 when I fell into their “cage” (I hate to call it that) at a zoo and my mom screamed as my dad kept recording on the video camera. It’s funny to watch, ha!

    Today is my favorite day on theneotraditionalist because everything you posted is absolutely delicious. Love it.

    I love giraffes!!! They are so beautiful. It was like that with monkeys running around where I stayed while on safari. So crazy! And I vote for Kenya! That’s where I went on a mission trip and I love that country.

    Giraffes are my number one obsession. I don’t collect anything… but giraffes. I am even getting a giraffe tattoo! I am officially planning my honeymoon to this place.

    I’ll have to put this on the list of places to take my giraffe-loving, photog husband. I mean, come on. The whole trip would be a huge photo op!

    My sister is doing a fellowship in Kenya for a year. I have been thinking Christmas in Kenya and I think I’m going to have to visit this place!

  14. Bailey@peppermintbliss

    Omg omg omg, definitely the coolest place on earth! I am OBSESSED with Giraffes, honeymoon perhaps? ‘Cept I think you have to get a bunch of shots to go to Kenya and that is pretty much a dealbreaker for me.

    Oh my god! Today I learned about a 3-day seat-sale for plane tickets to Kenya and I was daydreaming about it.. And I came upon this just now while catching up on my blog reading. This is the best! Hands down! Thanks for sharing. :)
