Karen's name seems to be everywhere in this part of Nairobi. Her life was indeed very interesting and the museum exhibits showed it very well. The grounds are well kept. One can see the mountains known as "The Knuckles" from this vantage point. Well done. Also, enjoyed the Giraffe Center very much. You could feed the giraffe and have him... More

Its so great to have these so close within reach of my residential area. Only downside is the price discrimination of locals and international tourists. Locals get a bargain. All three can be done in one day.

Just like in the film, in fact, the film set has been preserved. The guides are great and interested in their job.

Hard to believe how many animals we saw considering the parks proximity to Nairobi including lions, giraffes, zebas, buffalo and others.

National Park is lovely - best to get up and get in the park for sunrise - you get to watch the animals waking up and peeking over the hillside - pack a picnic and be wary of the hungry monkeys, they'll steal anything including bags and hats!!

I was expecting a larger place, the visitors area is very small and all you do is feed the giraffes. Yes it is nice, but they could have something else there.

Did a full day safari excursion. Were lucky with weather (no rain) and saw lots of antilopes, zebras, buffalos etc. Did also come very close to a lion.

Out of Africa is one of my all time favorite movies which made visiting the Karen Blixen Museum even more memorable. The giraffe Center was great and is not to be missed.

both the Karen Blixen Museum and Giraffe Centre are both worth visiting if you are in Nairobi. You can easily manage both in an afternoon.

We had the best guided tour of the property. He was very knowledgeable and easily answered all of our questions. A thoroughly delightful experience and well worth the time to stop and see it.
