“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

I wasn't interested in going, but was persuaded by my sister-in-law and I enjoyed it. My mother got quite moved hearing the guide talking about Karen Blixen and her wonderful efforts. The house is beautiful. So cool even in the heat. We'd just watched "Out of Africa", so it was fun to sit where Robert and Meryl had sat for the filming, telling stories and drinking on the verandah.

“Nairobi National Park Now Just Needs a Vibrant Website To Complete the Picture of "Awesome"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

So much has happened to the museum that if you are visiting it after a long time, you just get overwhelmed - I wish they can keep the dynamism on the ground online as well though!

“great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The main attraction of this place is the observation tower where the giraffes will come up and take food from your hands. Kids really love the experience.

Very nice historical site. Very interesting. Guides very good. Nice grounds. If you have an extra day in Nairobi I would recommend this site.

“Giraffe Center”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Giraffe center was cool because visitors are able to pet and feed the giraffes. However, once you get over the novelty, there is not much else to do.

To kill time, we found a small trail behind the giraffe center (cross the road), which takes you into a little park area.

We came mostly to check it off of our tourist list, but wouldn't go back twice.
