It feels like staying in a museum in African Heritage House. It is a wonderful place to take photos with a raw taste of Africa. The decorations and collections in the house are just exactly looks like my imagination about East Africa tribe. The Nairobi National Park is just in front of the house, you can sometimes see or hear wildlives at the veranda. On the day I checked out, 2 lovely monkeys broke into my room and ate my bananas and apples, they escaped through the big tree in the courtyard when they found that I saw them.
The location of the house is 15 minutes drive from airport but a bit far from centre. It is good for tourism, but not for business if you want to go to the centre or industrial zone.
All staffs in the house are helpful and friendly. It is a good experience to stay here while you are tired with common mordern hotels.
