Sample Tour Itinerary
If you want to turn back time to see Kenya the way it looked in the 1930s, The Giraffe Manor is the place to do so. Incredibly preserved and sitting on top of 140 acres of land, this place is like stepping into a dream.
In the morning, you’ll wake to giraffes impatiently waiting for you to come to your balcony and treat them to some snacks. Wake before the sun to find giraffe faces peeking through your balcony.
Just before sunset, high tea is served in the company of the giraffes. You can enjoy scones, cookies, and cakes along with tea or a cold glass of wine as you feed the giraffes and watch as the fading Kenyan sun lights the sky on fire with pink and purple.
And, the pièce de résistance at Giraffe manor is getting to enjoy breakfast with the giraffes. We’ll gather in the dining room to feed the giraffes their breakfast, then enjoy a delicious “human breakfast” to ourselves.

“As a travel blogger, I frequently take trips all over the world. But all my travels pale in comparison to the tour I went on with TBA Escapes. It was packed with amazing adventures, educational outings, delectable eateries, and outstanding accommodations. And the attention to detail was second-to-none! Every night we’d return to our luxurious rooms with a printed itinerary for the next day (complete with a weather forecast and outfit suggestions!) TBA Escapes curated an experience that let our group experience the very best of our destination. From the wilds to wineries, and everything in-between! But the most impactful takeaway has been the inspiring women I’ve met as a result. The friendships have long outlasted unpacking my bags, and I’m thankful to now be part of a supportive and empowering travel community. It was the experience of a lifetime, and one I’ll never forget!”
“TBA Escapes is INCREDIBLE! I was nervous to travel with a group of women I’d never met before but as soon as I arrived I felt at ease; everyone was so friendly and excited to be on such an incredible adventure that we all connected immediately. I formed lifelong friendships and, as a bonus, have new travel buddies to explore the world with! The TBA Escapes experience was impeccably done, from our beautiful, ultra-luxe lodging, to the delicious meals and snacks, to the absolutely incredible excursions, Kiersten and her team have it all down to a science. Every detail was taken care of; I only had to pack my bags and go…but even that was made easy because they provided us all with packing tips! Nothing was overlooked. I can’t wait to travel with TBA Escapes again soon!”
“I was nervous about signing up for the TBA Escapes tour because I’ve always planned my own travel itineraries. Giving all that control over to the TBA Escapes ladies was scary – but the best decision! The whole trip was amazing and luxurious, and every little detail was thought of and taken care of (seriously – from labels with our names for our bags and camera gear, snack bags for the road trips, any and all dietary preferences to schedules to get us everywhere on time and before other tourists…!). I cannot recommend TBA Escapes enough based just on this! But throw in that the trips are all to amazing places and that the TBA Escapes crew handpicks a group of fantastic girls that quickly turn from strangers to friends and travel buddies for life – I could not have asked for a better trip or experience.”
“My TBA Escapes tour was absolutely amazing and definitely met, if not exceeded, my expectations! It’s honestly hard to pick ‘highlights’ as literally every moment, destination, and activity was soo much fun and such an awesome experience. The TBA Escapes team was so friendly and helpful, seriously the best group to tour with! They kept everything and everyone very organized and made sure we were always prepared and knew what to expect along the way. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone, it was honestly a once in a lifetime experience and I had the most amazing time!”
