Have you ever leaned out of a second-floor window to pet a giraffe on the head? Probably not. At Giraffe Manor, these gentle giants feel right at home as they freely roam the property. They often poke their heads through open windows, bend their necks to greet you on the terrace, and even join you for breakfast, happily accepting snacks from your hand. Spending time with these extraordinary creatures at Giraffe Manor offers a truly unique and unforgettable experience for guests of all ages.

Giraffe Manor lives up to its name: a charming, Victorian-style mansion with a resident herd of endangered Rothschild giraffes strolling around the grounds, which feature manicured lawns and 140 acres of indigenous forest. It’s quite a sight to see these towering residents peek into the dining room windows at breakfast. Luckily, they prefer acacia leaves over pancakes!

In the heart of Zanzibar’s Stone Town, you’ll discover a charming maze of bazaars, bicycles, bas-reliefs, and benches. Stone benches, or bazara, line the narrow streets, perfect for people-watching. This UNESCO World Heritage site offers a captivating experience of the idyllic East African island, rich in culture, coffee, spices, and luxurious accommodations like the Park Hyatt, majestically perched on Shangani Beach.

From the hotel, you can easily explore the town’s attractions on foot: the lush Forodhani Gardens with its vibrant street food scene, the Old Fort which has served various purposes since 1699, the Old Dispensary, the Peace Memorial, and the Palace Museums. The bustling spice markets are filled with fragrant, colorful wares, including some of the finest coffee in the world. You might also find beautiful Tanzanian jewelry and visit the birthplace of Farrokh Bulsara, also known as Freddie Mercury of Queen.

No visit is complete without admiring the famous Zanzibari doors, ornately carved wooden masterpieces from the 19th century that are a true sensory delight in Stone Town.

The Serengeti in Tanzania is widely regarded as the ultimate destination for wildlife enthusiasts, evoking the Africa that Hemingway imagined when he wrote, “I loved this country and I felt at home; and where a man feels at home, outside of where he’s born, is where he’s meant to go.”

The Four Seasons Safari Lodge Serengeti captures this essence perfectly, providing an unmatched experience amidst the plains, rocky outcrops, and the rich diversity of wildlife. Located in the southern, slightly more arid part of the sprawling Serengeti-Maasai Mara ecosystem, roughly the size of New Hampshire, the Serengeti is often seen as the quintessential African safari location. Its vast expanses, seemingly endless skies, golden landscapes, and ancient serenity enchant visitors. As Elspeth Huxley noted, one might observe a “graceful giraffe, like a tiger lily bending elegantly in the wind,” highlighting the park’s majestic scale and delicate moments of beauty.
