“You'll learn a lot and have fun.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Had no idea who KB was as I'd not seen the Out of Africa film or read the book before my visit. Fascinating visit to her home and good quality souvenirs on sale at reasonable prices, for once.

Giraffe Centre is great, especially if you're brave enough to feed the giraffes by putting the food in your own mouth for them to take from you.

“Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Our Friendly Planet tour included a trip to the Karen Blixen Museum and Giraffe centre. This provides an opportunity to get close to and hand-feed the Rothschild giraffe from a feeding platform. There were also wart hogs and tortoises there.
Karen Blixen was the author of "Out of Africa" which was also a movie in the 80's. Her home has been restored and furnished in period antiques with beautiful gardens. A nice introduction to the country and quite interesting.

“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.
