“Interesting!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2014

Anyone who saw the movie would enjoy walking the grounds and visiting the house. The tour guides made an effort to provide as much information about Karen Blixen as possible. Definately fascinating how she landed in this part of the world, some of her painting are displayed. Its a peaceful site.

“A lovely, relaxing setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2014

We went to the coffee garden after visiting the Karen Blixen Museum just down the road and it was a very pleasant place to enjoy an evening drink and snack while sitting on the verandah looking out over the lovely lawn and garden.
The waiters were also extremely attentive and eager to please so it was a most enjoyable and relaxing experience.

This was a most interesting visit to see the home of the author of Out of Africa and to learn a little about her life.

“Wonderful food, worth visiting”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2014

Before visiting Karen Blixen museum on a private tour, our driver brought us to this place for lunch. We sat on a table under a large flowering tree to have a wonderful buffet meal ( since it was a Sunday) and a bottle of Tusker beer. Very beautiful and relaxing place, and prices were reasonable for the good quality of food and service. Definitely a must visit when in Nairobi. There was an artist/painter on site selling his reasonably- priced work.
