The manor was constructed in 1932 by Sir David Duncan, a member of the Mackintosh family of Mackintosh's Toffee fame on 150 acres (61 ha) of land stretching up to the Mbagathi River south of nairobi.



Overview

. In the 1960s the Manor was leased out to several people, including the late Dennis Lakin, and later in 1974 it was purchased by Betty Leslie-Melville who rehabilitated it to a habitable state.

After purchasing the Manor, the Leslie-Melvilles learned that the only remaining Rothschild giraffes in Kenya were in danger due to a compulsory purchase by the Kenyan government of an 18,000-acre (73 km2) privately owned ranch at Soy, near Eldoret, which was their sole habitat for sub-division into smallholdings and re distribution leading to slaughter of the giraffes for hides and meat.The conservation of the Rothschild was also endangered by their slaughter in Uganda during Gen. Idi Amin's era.

It rose to fame after the couple rescued a baby giraffe named Daisy from a heavily-poached area o f western Kenya in 1974,pushing the home into international limelight and fame among wildlife lovers world over.

The manor features 10 rooms and can accommodate up to 25 guests. The Center cares for endangered Rothschild giraffes, found in the semi-arid regions of Africa where they are known to live for thirty years of age in the wild. They have sharp eyesight, terrific speed and are known to have powerful kicks all important for its survival . There are over 500 Rothschild giraffes in Kenya today including seven at the Center. Their conservation is a success story in Kenya and the worldand it also hosts a leopard,warthogand tortoisein an area of beautiful natural forest in this suburb of Nairobi with several varieties of bird species. This wonderful center gives our visitor a memorable life time experience where you are able to touch and even stroke a giraffe as it kisses and licks you while you feed them. What an experience!In 1983 Rick Anderson, Betty's son from her first marriage, and his wife Bryony, moved into the Manor, and a year later opened the Manor as a small, privately hosted hotel where guests could feed the giraffes from their breakfast table, through the front door, and out of their bedroom window. The Manor has six bedrooms, one of which is furnished with the belongings of Karen Blixen, and all profits from the hotel go to furthering the charitable objectives of AFEW.Big names hosted at the manor include Johnny carson, Richard Branson, Ewan McGregor,andCharlie Boorman on the launch of Virgin Atlantic's London–Nairobi service in 2007. In March 2009 the Manor was purchased by Mikey and Tanya Carr-Hartleyand now forms part of the Tamimi group of lodges and hotels.
