Vote: Are Giraffe Hotels the Next Big Thing?

By Abbey Tiderman 02.26.2017 blog

 

Warning: the awww factor for today is quite literally sky high. Get this. You’re on vacation with your family, enjoying a delicious breakfast in a beautiful setting. Suddenly, a friendly, fuzzy head pops in to say good morning, fluttering its lovable giraffe eyelashes at you (and your toast!) How could you say no?

It may be hard to believe but this scene straight out of a story book can be your reality at Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, Kenya. And we’re not talking captive giraffes like you see at the zoo. These Rothschild giraffes are wild, and can gallivant across 140 acres of indigenous forest, stopping into the hotel’s 12-acre garden as they please.

Giraffe Manor has been delighting tourists with its luxurious details and majestic environment since the 1930s. It’s got sun-drenched terraces and 10 different rooms to accommodate up to 25 guests. A suite for a family of four during the high season costs $4,000 per day, but that includes meals cooked by the house chef, drinks, Wi-Fi, access to a site-seeing vehicle, and of course, giraffes. What do you say? Worth it for an up-close encounter with these elegant, long-legged creatures?

    I think that giraffe hotels are the next big thing, because, well- who doesn’t love giraffes? It could be a really cool experience, provided that the giraffes don’t drool in your food.

    It is the next big thing because i have not been to a zoo since i was 3 so it would be cool to be in a hotel with a bunch of giraffes

  4. someone

    I think it is the next big thing because it would be cool to eat with giraffes

    COUNT ME IN!!

    No i do not think eating with Giraffes is the next big thing. Why would i want to eat with a wild Giraffe.

    Are giraffe hotels the next big thing? In my opinion I don’t think this will be the next big thing because of the fact that a lot of people do not want to encounter a wild animal on their vacation. Many problems may occur while eating their food and having a large giraffe barge through their window seeking for food.

    It will be worth it 4,000 dollars for all of that and they let u drive a vehicle my vote was yes.

    Yes, because that’s really amazing. I been wanting to feed a giraffe for a long time and i feel like i would like them. Giraffes are incredible animals and they are very friendly. I will love to feed an giraffe in the morning while I’m eating or just for fun. I really like that awesome idea.

    No I don’t think Giraffes hotel would be the next big thing because it’s not healthy to have a Giraffe at the table while your eating.

  13. janita

    I don’t really think it’ll be the next big thing but, I would check it out for myself because it seems like it would be fun and a nice experience.

  14. Matthew Mann

    i don’t think that giraffe hotels are the next big think because who would want to eat with big giraffes and stuff and how would you be able to fit the giraffes in the hotel

  15. Noah Jones

    YES IT WILLLL.

  16. Allie Cowden

    No it is not the next big thing because who would want to eat big wild giraffes. And you will find a giraffe hair in your food. Gross.

      Yes, because giraffes are endangered species and they put up the hotel for helping these beautiful animals.
