It's just a little house and garden; my title says it all. BTW, I don't know why they lump the Giraffe Center with the Blixen House ... they are separate entities, with separate charges .

Having an opportunity to spend time with giraffes up close-- literally 10" away if you feed them-- is an experience that is hard to forget. The informative talk was very interesting.

Side by side you can see the charming home of Karen Blixen as well as have a chance to nuzzle with the very gentle and beautiful Rothchild's giraffes - plus help support wildlife conservation efforts in Kenya

From watching lions hunting impalas to providing closeup photos of a male bushbuck, my most recent visit was as enjoyable as those I've previously made. Not only a great little park for Nairobi, but one of Kenya's finest... More

I was about half way through the book at the time of the visit. Seeing the places she described helped me continue with the not-so-easy read.
