Giraffe Manor Nairobi Kenya must be your travel bucket list ideas. Watch and see why. 😃 SUBSCRIBE ►

Giraffe Manor Nairobi Kenya is set in 12 acres of private land within the posh neighborhood of Karen in Nairobi. The giraffe hotel was first built in 1932 as a private resident for a wealthy British family, with the Rothschild giraffe being brought to the manor in 1974.

Back in 1974 they were only 90 Rothschild giraffe left in the world and now the world has about 650, which still makes then endangered but it’s slowly getting better.

One of the most amazing thing about the family-owned Giraffe Manor in Nairobi Kenya even as a one of our chosen on your travel bucket list ideas, is its flock of the endangered Rothschild giraffe that normally visit morning and evening for some biting by the windows of the Giraffe Manor Hotel Kenya.

The Rothschild giraffe are normally well-known for their white socks.

#GiraffeManor hotel can be booked for the night or as part of a complete tailor-made safari with The Safari Collection, on any of their colonial style ten bedroom. Guests can choose to stay in one of the bedrooms in the main house or in the second manor. Their staff of 60 is always happy and ready to take good care of you while at your stay there.

The giraffe at the Giraffe Manor are not tamed, though they are used to coming to the Giraffe Manor hotel and getting hand fed by the visitors as can be seen on the video.

On the second floor of the Giraffe Manor hotel guest will normally experience a warm greeting by the giraffe in a trade off to their oatmeal pallet made of dry grass, corn and molasses which the management leaves in your hotel room for the giraffe.

The oatmeal left for the guests at the giraffe manor hotel will ensure you try and love the new giraffe feeding experience,which will definately be a new experience that will tick off well on your travel bucket list ideas.

The same happens late in the evening just before dinner, to ensure you have a good night’s sleep. See why we insist this has to be one of your list on your travel bucket list ideas.

Breakfast with the Giraffe Manor hotel guests are also a common routine for these endangered Rothschild giraffe, and for most guest, it’s normally a time for light selfies with the giraffe. This normally happens on the ground floor giraffe restaurant.

On this Giraffe Manor Nairobi Kenya video, you will see one of the keepers kissing or rather feeding the giraffe by putting the meal pallet on their month and ends up getting the saliva of the giraffe, don’t worry the giraffes saliva is known to be antiseptic.

The giraffes at the Giraffe Manor love kids, they always come to the manor when their hear kinds playing around, and the kids love feeding them too.

Ever wondered where Pumba from the Lion King went? Well wonder no more, we found friendly Pumba at the Giraffe Manor always hanging out with the giraffe. We are convinced this friendship is a bit unfair, we think Pumba does this because of the daily biting he gets to enjoy around the giraffe.

Giraffe Manor Nairobi Kenya also has over 180 species of birds.

I hope this exciting Giraffe Manor Nairobi Kenya video and information has been quite informative, and you have enjoyed it.

Kindly comment and remember to Subscribe to my Kevin Ndege Youtube channel for more Giraffe videos and perhaps in the near future more videos on the Giraffe Manor Nairobi Kenya and more Travel videos.

Thank you for watching this Giraffe Manor Nairobi Kenya and reading through.

Am I allowed to wear EARRINGS?!

The Backpack Initiative is one of the Air Force’s newest improvements to Air Force BMT! The Air Force implemented the new packing list in fall of 2016 for recruits heading to Lackland for Basic Training. The backpack initiative is still a work in progress and there is a huge learning curve for recruits leaving for BMT and for recruiters sending people to BMT. Over time this should iron out. But It looks like the new Air Force Basic Training Backpack Initiative is here to stay! No more web belts for trainees!

My Ultralight Backpacking Gear List – Sintax77

Views:262348|Rating:4.84|View Time:39:22Minutes|Likes:2240|Dislikes:75
A look at my current sub-10 pound 3-Season Ultralight Backpacking Gear List. Printable list at

In this video we’ll take detailed look at all of the items in my current 3-Season Ultralight Backpacking system load-out. This is the exact same load-out that I used in West Virginia during early October for the Ultralight Backpacking in the Cranberry Wilderness video. On this trip the overnight and morning lows got down as low as the mid-thirties and I made it by using the gear seen. Now, I wouldn’t take this load-out for sustained expected temps in that range, but in a pinch, at least I know I can get by. This is pretty much my go-to backpacking system for everything except for winter, from Tennessee up to Maine.

As seen in the video, I use a hammock camping system, running at 9.5 pounds, but I’ll show you some modifications for ground sleeping as well as warmer weather options to save weight (as low as 7.5 lbs), in both the video as well as my different gear lists, which are available on the Gear Lists page of my website, for those who wish to see specific weights, categories, and item descriptions. Below is a simplified list of the items seen.

Essential Items for Lightweight Backpacking (Simple Living and Travel)

Views:199683|Rating:4.84|View Time:6:31Minutes|Likes:2001|Dislikes:65
After years of backpacking, plus more than a year of dedicated life on the road, I have compiled a list of some of the items I consider essential. Of course these items may vary from person to person depending on what type of travel, accommodations, etc the traveler is engaging in. Nevertheless, having traveled under a wide range of places under a variety of circumstances, I have found that these are the items that I keep in my pack no matter what.

1. Backpack — I recommend traveling with a rather small pack and personally use the Deuter ACT Trail 28L SL
2. Daypack — Choose something that folds up nice and small. I like this simple LL Bean daypack with a main compartment, small front compartment, and two side pockets.
3. Packing Cubes — There are a variety of sizes, which will help you keep the items in your pack organized. I use a medium sized one for my main clothing and a small one for my underclothing.
4. Reusable Stuff-Sack Bags — These are “Chico” brand.
5. Quick Dry Towel
6. Combination Lock
7. Headlamp
8. Eye Mask
9. Ear Plugs
10. Rubberband Clothesline — You can purchase this at REI or make your own as I have. (Here are some online instructions:
11. Knife with Sheath and Spork — I use the Light My Fire spork, which can be found at REI. These knives can also be found at Target/Walmart.
12. Small notebook and no smudge pen
13. Toiletry Kit — I use the Sea to Summit Hanging Toiletry Bag and love it. I have the smallest one, which has plenty of room for me.
14. E-Reader — I use a Sony eReader Pocket
15. Smart Phone –Ideally one that has a camera and stores music, such as an Iphone.
16. Lightweight Laptop — Something small and light, such as a Macbook Air. I have a Lenovo Ideapad.

13 Most Unusual Houses

Views:1183872|Rating:4.70|View Time:8:34Minutes|Likes:5452|Dislikes:352
From a house shaped like a toilet to an upside down house, these are 13 of the most shocking homes from around the world!

Subscribe for weekly wacky videos and learn interesting facts about the world with awesome top 10 lists and other amazing videos.

8 – House On A Rock – The Drina River in Serbia is where one of the strangest and tiniest houses on our list sits a house perched on a rock. The house is over 40 years old and has weathered the Serbian elements to remain standing. Built in 1969, the house came to be when a group of boys were looking for a place to lay out in the sun and discovered the rock. Realizing it would be a great place to build the structure, the boys constructed the one bedroom house and it’s been there ever since.

7 – Bubble House – Selected to be an historic monument by the French Ministry of Culture even though its not even 40 years old. The house was designed by an organic architect named Antti Lovag and has sprawling views of the Mediterranean Sea. The convex windows and peculiar shape made it truly bizarre. The focal point of the house is the garden at the center that features a waterfall and stream. Exotic vegetation line the garden and the interior is fitted with built in furniture, shelving and cupboards.

6 – upside down house – This Upside Down House looks like a movie set – but it’s not! Located in Poland, the upside down house was created by Daniel Czapiewski – a Polish businessman. The house has become one of the largest tourist attractions in Poland, although tourists have complained of motion sickness and nausea upon entering. The interior of the house is fully furnished and decorated, with everything bolted to the ceiling to keep with its theme. There is a pretty profound message behind the house – Daniel was trying to make a statement about the state of the world, namely the Communist era. The house took longer to build because the workers kept getting disoriented by the upside down design.

5 – Boeing 727 Hotel – Though technically a hotel and not a house, it’s just too cool not to mention. The 1965 Boeing 727 frame used for this hotel was salvaged from San Jose and carefully brought to Costa Rica. The hotel consists of two bedrooms with their own private baths, a kitchenette, dining area, private entrance and ocean view terrace. It’s completed fitted with Costa Rican teak paneling and hand carved teak furniture. From the terrace, the only neighbors visible are the monkeys, toucans and sloths.

4 – Flintstones House – Well, this house may look familiar. TV personality Dick Clark had actually been the one to fight to have this home built. Located in Malibu California, the house is situated on 23 acres and needed to look like a rock formation to blend into the surroundings in order for Dick Clark to get permission to build on the wild site. The home is a one bedroom, two bath, with an interior covered in steel and wood. The huge glass windows offer 360 degree views of the surrounding Santa Monica Mountains. The house was recently sold by Clark’s widow for $1.78 million.

3 – Soccer Ball House – Not only is this soccer ball house located in Japan but it’s also apparently disaster proof. The house has 32 sides and is structurally designed to withstand earthquakes. This house is apparently a hot commodity and is popping up all over Japan, ranging in size from large all the way down to doghouses. The interior consists of one small room with a fireplace in the middle. The neat thing about this home is you can combine several units together to create a number of configurations.

2 – The Keret House – Not only is this structure a house, it’s also an art installation. Designed by the architect Jakub Szczesny in 2012, the Keret House measures just around 3 feet by 5 feet. It consists of two floors and has a kitchen one bedroom, a living area and bathroom. To get from the first floor to the second floor, the residents have to climb a ladder. To enter the house you’d need to use retractable stairs that turn into the living space when closed. Located in Warsaw, the Keret House was built between two buildings and the designer considers it a tribute to his family were killed during World War II.

1 – toilet shaped house – The question isn’t does it exist.. The question is WHY does it exist? And there’s actually a very interesting answer to that question. Built by the late mayor of Suwon South Korea, Sim Jae-Duck the purpose was to bring awareness to clean and working sanitation. He was born in a bathroom and has made it his mission in life to be an advocate for the 2 billion people in this world living without toilets. The house is 4520 square feet of concrete, steel and glass and cost $1.1 million to build. The focal point of the house is an obvious one – it’s a glass walled bathroom in which the walls become opaque when a button is pushed.
