Animal Paradise: The Best Hotels for Animal Lovers

If you’re an animal lover, chances are you can’t go a single week without a cuddle from a furry friend. While going on vacation with your pet may not be for everyone, for some people, it’s the best option.

There are plenty of hotels that cater to animals, but there are also tons of hotels that offer a variety of animal activities on the premises. Learn to hunt with hawks, play polo, or just hang out with a loving animal. Here are a few cool options to consider for your next vacation.

Giraffe Manor – Nairobi, Kenya

Giraffe Manor is a boutique hotel located in the beautiful Lang’ata suburb of Nairobi, Kenya. The hotel itself is gorgeous – a small collection of well-curated rooms that are designed for the most discerning visitor.

While the rooms and the hotel amenities are spectacular, the most amazing thing about Giraffe Manor is their herd of giraffes that roam the expansive grounds. The boldest among them will peek their heads into your room, hoping for a treat. You can stay here for your entire vacation, or book a single night (which costs around $550) as part of a safari through the region.
