Three Places You Can Have Breakfast With Giraffes



The holidays are nigh. This is the perfect time to start planning. Probably you have done the same things over the years. I challenge you to be a little creative and adventurous for your holiday this time round. One suggestion I could offer is to get a little wild and get in tune with nature. How do you fancy a Christmas trip or New Year 2018 trip to have some fun with giraffes?

Giraffes are beautiful creatures. I love their graceful nature, long lashes, amazing spots and elongated sophisticated necks. They are some awesomeness in how they pick leaves for their food, chew with a lot grace while simultaneously looking over all other creations- animals, trees, people- with an attitude. Giraffes are mainly found in the tropics so you may have to plan your vacations around these regions. In my opinion vacations are meant to stretch your wings and travel around the world to new places. This broadens your mind as you get to interact with new people, different cultures and gain new experiences. One new experience you should have in your bucket list is…wait for it…breakfast with giraffes! How awesome is this.

Where can you do this? Here are three places you can have with giraffes:


Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya

Established in the early 1930’s, Giraffe Manor offers a unique experience with giraffes. This manor is housed in a sanctuary for endangered Rothschild giraffes and is located in Karen- a leafy suburb on the outskirts of Nairobi. It has a Scottish feel and has an interesting history. Here you get to see and possibly interact with herds of these beautiful animals.

What better way to have a close look at and interact with them than at breakfast time. As they go about their business, the giraffes often will come to your breakfast table to request for food through the large bay windows. They simply stick out their elongated necks hoping you will do them the honors. Additionally, the Giraffe Manor offers finger licking gourmet meals and an assortment of accommodation to choose from.
