My perfect FT Weekend would be...

I want to fly into Nairobi on a Friday evining, be transported off to Girraffe Manor for the weekend and to live with Giraffes until Sunday!

The beautiful Giraffe manor in the secluded Nairobi Suburbs will be my tranquil weekend of peace away from the hustle and bustle of a busy GP lifef in London. I would like to be settled into one of their sumptuous rooms before toddling down to dinner looking out at the star riddled sky without and the shadows of the giraffes stalking around. The highlight would be breakfast with the Giraffes hopefully popping their heads in the window and allowing me to share breakfast with them. After lunch I would walk in the 140 acre site, exploring, relaxing and delighting in the wildlife... another dinner followed by a lazy Sunday morning. A final walk amongst the majestic giraffes before lunch and then whisking off sadly to the airport to come home. I know it sounds simple and straight forward but it is my dream weekend without a moments hesitation. Have a look and share my joy.. www.thesafaricollection.com/properties/giraffe-manor/#qgallery
