This unique Kenyan sanctuary stands on a 12-acre section of private land immersed in 140 acres of indigenous forest. The ivy-covered mansion turned hotel can accommodate guests in a luxurious environment, where the wild Rothschild giraffes pay a daily visit. The animals — some of which are fourth generations — can dine on healthy pellets off a plate at your table, out of your hand and even from your lips, in a place where feeding animals is actually encouraged.

These particular Rothschild giraffes are part of a 1979-African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW) breeding program started by the manor’s owners. They breed naturally in the sanctuary and the calves born are introduced into the wild when they are two years old. And although giraffes as a whole aren’t endangered, Rothschilds remain the second-most threatened giraffe and their natural habitat keeps getting smaller.
