“Nairobi National Park”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Biggest problem is price for non-residents. Crazy high and you don't see Elephants and may or may not see Lions. Most likely not--but still charge you as if you were at Masai Mara. Definitely not worth Park Fee. If KWS wants to ruin people coming to parks--then keep increasing park fees. Not sure what they are doing with money, as more elephants were poached and killed this year in Kenya. Sad.

My kids were very excited to see some of the animals they always seen on TV. The park attendants were very friendly and helpful.

“Informative exhibits close to Nairobi.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

The Karen Blixen Museum is the property where Ms. Blixen ("Out of Africa") lived. The house and grounds are a well-preserved outpost of colonial days, but mostly of interest to fans of the book or movie. The nearby Giraffe Center is a great place to learn about giraffes, and see the rare Rothschild species up close. An excellent place to start your tour of Kenya.

“Karen Blixen museum a rip off- under renovation”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

For anyone traveling to Nairobi in the next few months- SKIP THE KAREN BLIXEN MUSEUM! It is under renovation. They are charging 500 Kenya Shillings to walk through an empty house with a bored guide looking for a tip and take a 2 minute walk on the grounds. If you are staying in downtown Nairobi, the traffic to the museum is not worth it.
