They made Karen Blixen(Out of Africe) home into a museum. I thought it was very interesting to walk around her home. Its still gorgeous, can only imagine what it use to look like.

A visit here is both heartwarming and touching - such a worthy cause. We adopted babies and were able to visit both in the morning and again in the afternoon for bedtime. Highly recommend!!

A beautiful place with nice food; unfortunalty they are only white people... since it remains a highly tourisitic spot. But it is worth your time and it is delicious.
