“Back to Out of Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This was our second visit to Karen Blixen's Museam, the first being twenty years ago. The guided tour of the house was excellent. In addition the opportunity to wander around and sit in the grounds allows you to slip back in time and to feel that you are experiencing something of that era. The views of the Ngong hills gives atmosphere as you remember the contribution made by this extraordinary women.

“Eye to Eye w/the Giraffes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This was a quaint little park that was worth a short visit. Enjoyed the platform where you could be eye to eye with the giraffes.

“KBT giraffe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

I fed the giraffe - conquered an irrational fear of giraffes rooted in childhood - not that I ever met any then :-))
Karen Blixen's farm was as expected- amazed so many of the original furnishings were recovered and returned.

“Get close to a lovely animal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

A great experience learning all about the tallest animals and one of The Beautiful 5. A real bonus is getting to feed one a little snack and get a hands on experience with the enormous tongue of these animals.

“Giraffe Sanctuary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

A must see while you are in Nairobe..Close to Wilson Airport in Karen, this place is amazing. You can feed the giraffes or just hang out and enjoy the scenery. Cute gift shop too..
Karen Blixen Museum is great, (Out of Africa) filmed in this area..
