Giraffe Manor’s Origin

Built in 1932, Giraffe Manor is the oldest of The Safari Collection’s properties and was modelled on a Scottish hunting lodge. The elegant long legged giraffes have roamed its lawns since the 1970s when Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville first adopted an orphaned Rothschild’s giraffe called Daisy. Tanya and Mikey Carr-Hartley bought the manor in April 2009. Since then it has become a globally recognized hotel.

Giraffe Manor’s History

Having grown up in the neighborhood, Giraffe Manor has always played a significant role in Tanya Carr-Hartley’s life. As a child, she rode through the grounds on horseback and would occasionally have a cup of tea with Betty before returning home. Tanya recalls that the horses did not like the smell of the giraffes, so it was always a quick one. To own Giraffe Manor was something of a childhood dream and in April 2009, this dream came true.
