“Head over heals for Giraffes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Bundle these sights, which are all in the same area and approx. 20 km from the city center. All are worthwhile! If you've read 'Out of Africa', the Karen Blixen home is a must.

“In Africa......out of Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Even if I hadn't seen the movie, this museum is excellent. Karen Blixen was an amazing person and her home is exceptional. Do visit, don't hesitate. Did not know she was in the coffee business and saw her coffee roasting machinery.

“Nairobi best Excursions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Nairobi walk in the National Park, one of its kind! Very rarely can you find a park or a zoo where you can feed the giraffes! Historical sites too..

“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!
