“Giraffe Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We spent an hour or so at the Giraffe Center and enjoyed feeding the giraffes by hand. They are beautiful. The staff is kind and helpful. We had lunch at the Blixen Museum but were too late to tour the house. The nearby Mazuri bead center is amazing as well with a wonderful back story and beautiful jewelry to purchase at prices far below what it costs in the US.

“Blixen Museum and Giraffe Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

The Blixen House is a wonderful place to see and get a feel of plantation life. The guides were knowledgeable of her personal life as well as the history of the house and its furnishings. Great for history buffs.

The Giraffe Center is great for the whole family. Everyone has a chance to get up close and personal with the giraffes. No one has to rush to do anything.

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

The visit to the Karen Blixen Museum was a wonderful experience. Having seen the film it was great to actually visit the house that she lived in. The history that goes with this museum is great. This was followed by a visit to the Giraffe Centre which was once again a wonderful experience.
