We just came for coffee but had a lovely time relaxing in a beautiful setting. Service was good and no problem with a group of mixed races. Tea and coffee were delicious and would definitely come again!

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.
