Opening of The Retreat is the perfect complement to the Giraffe Manor experience

Kenya’s famous Giraffe Manor has expanded its unique offering with the opening of The Retreat. A standalone building within the grounds of Giraffe Manor, it features a sauna, steam room, fully-equipped gym and hot tub – and, of course, visits from the same herd of Rothschild’s giraffe which greet guests for breakfast and afternoon at Giraffe Manor.

Located just 80 metres to the left of the main Manor, it shares the same tranquil outlook over the forested giraffe sanctuary. Designed to pay homage to the original house next door, The Retreat houses high ceilings and large arched windows which frame the Manor’s iconic herd of giraffes that might be glimpsed loping across the lawns in the distance or at the end of the infinity pool.

Other highlights include a sundeck and breezy rooftop garden, a 21-metre infinity pool, two en-suite spa treatment rooms, an indoor lounge with fireplace, and four sumptuous day rooms.
