Owner description: The African Heritage House overlooking the Nairobi National Park is described by the Architectural Digest as "an architecture arising from the sere Kenyan plain like an outcropping of earth, a vision of usefulness informed by the African genius for decoration" .Inside one journeys through a spectrum of African textiles, masks, art, artifacts, crafts, books and photographs. Designed by American Alan Donovan, co-founder of the African Heritage, Africa's first Pan African Gallery, the house is a combination of the mud architecture from across Africa. Tours cost a minimum of K. Sh. 3000.00 (about $40) for up to 5 persons and thereafter K. Sh. 500 for each additional person.

“Simply Magnificent, Simply Africa!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

This house simply hosts the beauty of Africa! It’s an attraction for those who love Africa. The owner is a great guide. More time should be spent in each room to fully appreciate its beauty.
