(Dress: Topshop)

If I'm being totally honest, visiting Giraffe Manor felt like a bit of a dream. Although it was definitely a whistle stop visit for dinner before our midnight flight from Nairobi to London, being able to visit at all was still wonderful (although I'm definitely now looking at a stay, just to experience the breakfast)!

Built in the 1930's across 12 acres of leafy forest in the centre of Nairobi, Giraffe Manor is the beautiful home of the resident Rothschild giraffe- a breed carefully nurtured and bred by the manor in order to reintroduce them to the wild (another reason why I was so enamoured with The Safari Collection was down to all of the conservation work that they do). Although there's only ten double bedrooms in the manor, we were able to enjoy a delicious afternoon tea on the patio, before dinner in one of the main living areas (sadly once the giraffes had gone to bed)!

I really hope you've enjoyed reading my Kenya posts as much as I've enjoyed putting them together! It truly was one of the most incredible trips I've been on, so hopefully you've perhaps found a nugget of inspiration in here somewhere! I'd love to know if any of you have been on safari too! I've definitely fallen a little head over heels for Africa, and hope that one day I can go back again (especially if giraffes are involved)!
