If you don't have time for a more extensive safari at the great parks in Kenya, this is something that gives you a glimpse of what you are missing

My first encounter with a giraffe was feeling the lips pick up feed from my hands. They are surprisingly soft and gentle. Walking through Karen Blixen's house and remembering scenes from the movie "Out of Africa" made everything come alive. She was an incredible woman that left an indelible mark in Kenya.

What a Wonderful experience feeding the Giraffes. I've always admired these beautiful and elegant creatures that God created and boy are they BEAUTIFUL! This was the limelight of our vacation to be able to feed Giraffes. We fell in love with "HELEN"...what a beauty! This is definitely a museum to visit if you can't go on a safari.

Visiting the house of " I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills" puts much of the film Out of Africa" (Meryl Streep/Robert Redford etc) into context. The house and grounds are simply wonderful and the tour guides knowledgeable. It is not badly priced either.

the karen blixen museum (her house she actually lived in with her husband) and the coffee garden (near by on her former grounds) are worthwile a visit. we liked the authenticity of the house, you get the feel of how it was to live there. The garden serves good cappuccino, the food we did not taste yet, but we will... More

The giraffe center was really nice but the Karen Blixen home was just so-so. Not a big "Out of Africa" fan, I admit.

The Giraffe Center is wonderful, so up close, Warthogs too! It is wonderful to see the very young children visit the Center, eyes wide open! The Karen Blixen Museum is a must. Extremely well run tours given by a most experienced staff.
