“The Blixen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2015 NEW via mobile

It's a very unique place. Holds a lot of Kenyan pre-colonial history. Beautiful garden and the artwork is unique and special.

Feels like a sanctuary to me, the flowers, the art. Take time and pay a visit then tell us if it was worth it.

“Definitely worth a visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2015 NEW

Lovely day out for a coffee and a snack in a very beautiful garden with lots of arts to look at, that can be bought. The history is also very interesting and the house itself is worth a closer look.

“A look at life in Kenya from an earlier time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2015

An interesting look at life in Kenya in the early twentieth century. If you go, pay in Kenyan schillings for a better rate. It would help if you were familiar with her books prior to your visit.

“I HAD A FARM IN AFRICA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2015

Grate place to stop and have lunch, look around the gardens.
we where lucky to see the art that was for sale around the gardens, well worth the stop. make sure you check out the gift shop its very very reasonable and has some stuff that you don't normally see any where else (not the samey samey stuff)
