“One cannot resist the lure of Africa” – Rudyard Kipling.
I dream of going on safari of course, but Giraffe Manor has captured my imagination.
Waking up in the stunning, ivy engulfed historic Manor, then heading to breakfast to see doe-eyed Rothschild Giraffes poking their long necks through the open windows as breakfast is served – a pinch myself moment. That must be a truly surreal sight that I would love to experience.
In Nairobi I would visit The Karen Blixen Museum, the home of the Danish author from 1917-1931. Out of Africa is one of my all time favourite movies and some of the most memorable scenes were filmed here. Meryl Streep and Robert Redford “sigh”.
A trip to the Maasai Markets would also be on my agenda and I love the distinctive Maasai beadwork. I don’t mind a little bit of spirited “haggling” when it is expected.
Yes, Africa, you are on my list. xannabelle
