Kenya is one of the most beautiful countries I’ve ever travelled to. We crafted our trip mixing different experiences- Safari, unique hotel stay which was the Giraffe Manor and the encounter with the local culture.
We chose Samburu as our Safari destination which was a perfect choice. After spotting the most unique species we visited the local village and were hosted by the Samburu tribe.
During our Safari experience we stayed in Sasaab by the Safari Collection which was everything I ever dreamt of.
The final stop of our trip was a stay in the Giraffe Manor which was just as unique as the picture show!
Nairobi has a very healing park that adopts giraffes. In the 1970s, a giraffe called Rothschild was on the verge of extinction. By 1973, there were only 130 in western Kenya. In order to save this rare species, they applied a method of adopting the animal and returning it to nature. Visitors come here to choose to feed the giraffes, sit on the quiet bench and have tea, and even kiss the giraffes, as long as you stay outside the fence. With the stick-shaped feeder feeding the giraffe, the giraffe will come over and feed and feeling really glad. I feel that the world's longest neck animal is also very happy to kiss humans.
The Giraffe Center is home to the endangered Rothschild Giraffe, whose mission is to foster animal protection awareness, provide environmental education, and inspire people to appreciate and protect the diversity of Kenyan animals. This place is very interesting and the content of the event is also colorful. You can observe the giraffes from the second floor balcony of a red building and feed them. This is a very rare experience, especially for children or adults with childlikeness. From the giraffe center you can also cross the adjacent Gogo River and enter the bird sanctuary for an interesting forest walk.
