WHAT WE LOVE: The big open spaces, incredible dark skies at night, landscapes that take your breath away and the desert climate that makes for fantastic photography. Namibia is a country of many cultures, stories, and history. One of the highlights of this mostly desert country is the NamibRand Nature Reserve. With its own set of stories that tell of perseverance, commitment, passion, and success, we are thrilled to represent the Premier Camps in the Wolwedans Collection.


Giraffe Manor

Giraffe Manor is a peaceful retreat to start or end a safari in East Africa and has become an icon of Nairobi’s historical landscape, and with just 12 luxury rooms, it is one of the most exclusive places to stay in the city. Located in the leafy suburbs of Langata on a 140-acre sanctuary of indigenous forest, Giraffe Manor offers a unique opportunity to meet the resident giraffe, all of whom are the endangered Rothschild's giraffe subspecies.
