Brit hotel will let you feed giraffes from your room in Kenya safari alternative

You don’t have to travel to Kenya’s Giraffe Manor to feed wild animals from your bedroom.

Port Lympne Hotel & Reserve near Hythe, Kent, is preparing to offer a very similar experience.

Its planning to open Giraffe Hall, which will be situated inside the safari park’s 15th century Grade II listed Wealden hall house.

The stunning building boasts 10 en-suite bedrooms and five luxurious cabins that boast “30 mile unrivalled views over the reserve”.

Guests will be able to look out over the 600-acre site, which is home to more than 900 animals including black rhino, gorillas, tigers and lions.

They can then feed the giraffes from their bedroom windows, while there's also going to be a cabana style retreat for visitors to sit and enjoy a drink and take in the views.

The surrounding gardens are also being tended to, where a route for giraffes is being made.

Families will be able to get a good night's rest and awaken by stunning creatures walking down the trail beside the building.

A statement from Port Lympne says: "Once completed, the hotel will offer a luxury safari feel while incorporating the comforts and décor of an English stately home."

Giraffe Hall is expected the luxury hotel will open next summer – and apparently, there’s already a huge waiting list for it.

According to reports, 9,000 people have shown their interest in booking a stay there.

The cost of overnight stays is yet to be revealed.

But there’s no doubt it will be cheaper than flying out to Nairobi to experience a Kenyan safari.
