The Carr-Hartley family share their home with eight Rothschild giraffes, some of the rarest on the planet.
In the shadow of Kenya's Mount Kilimanjaro, the giraffes are free to roam their 140-acre estate, but regularly visit their English-style manor built in the colonial era.
Every day before 9am, the animals poke their heads through the windows and doors in search of morning treats.
Tanya and Mikey Carr-Hartley are now opening up the manor gates to guests at the "giraffe hotel". The couple, both 38, had spent their childhood living close to the house in Nairobi and have both always been fascinated with the tallest animal in the world.
Tanya said: "Mikey and I grew up near to this manor house when we were children. We are both third generation Kenyans who have always wanted to work in conservation. Mikey's family have been involved in the protection of animals for many generations."
"His granddad was even involved in the relocation of giraffes as far back as the 1930s. Moving the giraffes ensured their protection and continued existence. When the house came up for sale, we jumped at the chance to buy it as we had always dreamed of one day owning it."
"We are now absolutely overjoyed to be involved with the protection of this very endangered species. Having the giraffes so close is very special and something which people can now experience by staying in one of the six rooms at the hotel."

What's more, to influence it to work - and keep it a sound, useful and sexual, you need to invest effort, responsibility and well, get somewhat innovative. Read more
Life is a precious gift, but it’s all too easy to take it for granted. We assume we’re going to wake up each morning, and may have grievances about our work, or our neighbors, or the weather. We worry about things that we have no control over. All of these things may mean we’re not taking opportunities that are presented to us and we’re not living life to the full because we’re always looking for the negative. Read more
