Have Breakfast With Giraffe
Giraffe Manor is a unique boutique hotel in the heart of Nairobi, famous for its resident herd of endangered Rothschild giraffe. The manor house was originally built as a private home in the 1930s and has twelve bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms.
Breakfast is the highlight of any stay here when the giraffe pop their heads through the dining room window to see what is on offer. Guests will also find a pot of giraffe nuts in their bedroom in case they wish to entertain any very tall visitors through their window.
Giraffe Manor is also home to many characters including warthogs, bushbuck, dik dik and more than 180 species of birds and has a striking view of the Ngong hills.
Sail On The Ritz Carlton’s First Luxury Yacht
Reservations are now open for the 2020 inaugural season.
Gourmet Picnic On The Great Wall of China
Soak in the views with a picnic lunch on the wall, away from the crowds and in all its rugged, untouched grandeur. The first hour of the trek is an approach to the ancient structure, which gradually comes into view, before hiking past crumbling watchtowers as the wall becomes steadily more restored as you head towards Mutianyu.
Be sure to break the journey at the Zhengbeilou Tower with its panoramic views over the Jiankou wall and the surrounding countryside. After around 5 hours of hiking you’re rewarded with a picnic of cheese and wine on the Great Wall before being driven back to Beijing in the evening.
