“Great for a half day of animal spotting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

Kaen blixen - highlight - feeding the Giraffes and being so close to them - brilliant.
National Park - like a mini Safari - got us in the mood for a subsequest visit to Tsavo East.

“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The museum was a very pleasant surprise. I was afraid that it was overhyped, but it was really very interesting. Our guide did a very nice job. Photos of Karen Blixen proved what a fine characterization Meryl Streep did in Out of Africa. The gift shop is small but has quality Kenyan merchandise.

“Karen Blixen's Contribution to Kenya”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

This is a most interesting site and story about a woman who came to Nairobi, married, divorced, took a lover, built a business, lost it and then built up another means of support for herself. Her home is now a museum and a guide will walk you through it sharing the interesting history of this property.
