Ok, so this is what I've been waiting 2 years for...This is the Giraffe Manor. It's a sanctuary for the endangered Rothschild giraffes and it's also a wonderful place to stay if ever you're in Kenya. This is only a smidgen of the pics I took today, I'll get into more detail once I get home but I wanted to show you how special this place is and why I was stressing out so badly to get here...
But first, Dubai. This is Burj Khalifa, the tallest skyscraper in the world.
Ok, that's all for Dubai for today. Off to Giraffe Manor! Yes, I'm skipping the Kafi apartments too...that's all for a later day. I'm exhausted. It's past midnight and I've been post processing for over 2 hours now.
We got up early to have some breakfast with the giraffes. Food pics coming later!
The food is wonderful in case you were wondering...
This is my cousin Susie.
And her husband Evam. You'll meet Layne and Amanda later.
After breakfast we headed out to The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. This is where they foster orphaned elephants. You can also get a chance to adopt an elephant for 50 USD per year. Susie adopted one, I can't remember her name but she was rescued from a poaching mission I think 2 years ago.
After the elephants we went back to the manor and they showed us to our rooms...here's ours...
We have a balcony where we can feed the giraffes in the morning
I'll show you more later. On to lunch...
Meet Layne and Amanda. Layne and Randy have been friends since hanabata days and he was the best man at our wedding.
After a quick nap it was time for high tea...and lots and lots of kisses!
The lighting was incredible
Ok good night! Gotta get up early tomorrow for another adventure!
