“Nice place to see part of Kenya history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Have you seen the movie called "Out of Africa"? if so, this Karen Blixen Museum is the place hiroin Karen actually lived long time ago. The town named after her name. Many colonians lived Karen area before. These days many Kenyan (black) people live in the area.

“A wonderful visit.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

In late November I completed my third visit to these wonderful locations. May I suggest you read Karen Blixon's book, "Out of Africa" and/or see the movie before you go, as I think either or both will enhance your visit to her home in Karen, Kenya. I particluarly enjoy the view of the Ngong Hills from her back-yard. The giraffe sanctuary gives you a VERY up close and sometimes personal look at giraffes and be sure to try to arrange a visit to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and hopefully "adopt" a baby elephant while there. The trust is leading the way to help preserve the African elephant in the wild, as poaching by organized crime groups from Asia is threatening them and rhinos with extinction in the wild.

“A good half-day activity in Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

First we drove to the National Park which was not so small as we have thought with nice city views on the background. We spotted rhinos, giraffes, buffalos, zebras and lots of gazzels of different kinds. Did not see cats. The entrance fee was quite high 40 USD per person though. Then we visited the baby elephant center next door and were explained about the orphan elephants You could even touch them and could watch them drinking milk from their bottles which was so nice.
The next thing we visited was Karen Blixen Museum. The house was situated in a big open garden with acatia trees and it looked like in the pictures, the house inside was authentic, had some original furniture and books and pictures made by Karen Blixen. A guide was explaining the story which made the visit more valuable.
In the giraffe center you can feed, tap the heads and kiss giraffes and take a picture with them which was also so quite. But the center was actually very small and it would have been better if somebody had explained us about the different girrafes, there were.
Overall expression was worth a visit.
