When I booked our trip to Kenya, I was left with a 24 hour time frame in the Nairobi area and I needed to find something nice to do with my family.

Very interesting. Watched the movie before we left for our trip and so everything we saw was fresh in our minds. Our guide was very sweet. No pics inside the museum.

Having read the book, thoroughly enjoyed seeing where LuLu the bushbuck antelope ran through the rooms. Well-informed tour guide. Lovely spot. Recommend.

It does take you back in time to the famous Robert Redford and Meryl Streep movie "Out of Africa". Frankly I didn't knew much about Karen Blixen untill I saw the movie.

While not as comprehensive as some others, the house and grounds are charming and my guide gave me a good background on Karen Blixen's life here.
