karen blixen is a restaurant with good food but nothing to have you drive miles and miles away to reach it. the garden set out is lovely and the art display is a plus but then thats on the side

A dream come true to visit this remarkable place!! I can see why Karen Blixen loved Kenya. It feels like you have stepped back in time and can really feel the love that Karen had for this place. Great tour and very informative tour guides.

This place is very quiet during the week. We had a great guide. Very informative. I don't recommend it for children as my 8 year old daughter got very bored. It took us an hour to see the place.

Wonderful surroundings, all staff very good. David looked after us well. Three beef burgers and beers and chips sitting outside. Not to be missed. Hopefully will go again.

Very historical lodging but very well maintained, including the use of gas for power and hot baths/shower. On cold evenings, there is a facility to heat the room. Food was excellent and delicious, though portions for breakfast weren't very generous, in comparison to similar hotels/lodgings...More
