“Giraffe Center is the most interesting stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The Karen Blixen Museum has very little to offer. On the other hand. the Giraffe Center is well worth the stop. You can admire the giraffes up close and the staff on site is very friendly and helpful.

“Nice visit”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

Loved learning a bit more about the character, Karen Blixen and some of her idiosyncrasies. Lovely museum.
The giraffe center was fun. Really enjoyed feeding the giraffes

“A "must"when you visit Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

These attractions are a “must” when you have time available in Nairobi. Ask your hotel to book a taxi for you for a full day and buy the driver lunch and refreshments during the day, that is expected. Start very early from the hotel and visit the National Park first, proceed to the Giraffe Centre where you will be able to feed these beautiful and amazing animals. The drive from the main gate in Lang’ata to Karen Blixens house is not too far and all in all, it will be a very nice day. Be prepared for heavy traffic when you drive back to the city centre from Karen.

“great places to see close to Nairobi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

National park indeed good for spotting game (if you do not have the time to visit Massai Mara or similar...), Karen Blixen Museum (Out of Africa-Site) is also very interesting and old original interior items still to be seen there. Giraffe Center is nice, too. You get very Close to the giraffes, can even feed them (if you like mouth to mouth;-))

“Very informative guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

This is our second visit to the Karen Blixen Museum and if anything, the guide who talked to us was even more informative than the last time. It's a look back at a very interesting life-style and the whole house is kept in immaculate order. A pleasure to visit.
