“Just have seen the movie”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2015 NEW

If you know the movie it is pretty interesting. The history of this place is just stunning. We had a great guide and a good time. Try the little hiking trail, definitely worth it. We had fun and will come back to show family and friends around.

“Interesting if you are familiar with story”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2015 NEW

This was put on our itinerary to fill in our time. We had a private guide to take us through the house. We weren't all that familiar with the story except that we had seen Out of Africa.

“. Beautiful atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2015

Nice food and nice choices. The only negative was overpriced drinks. The waitress charged different prices for the same drinks to members of our party. The experience and beauty outweighed the $5 bottle of water.

“Quaint”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2015

The grounds are simply marvelous. The perfect walking tour. House and ground are well kept, staff are quite helpful and it's a short drive from Nairobi.
