“Lovely place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This place is very nice, full of trees, flowers and pure nature. Food is also good, however, the ambiance is the most remarkable part of the experience!

“"A beautiful setting"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Enjoyed a beautiful evening meal at the coffee garden restaurant where the food was excellent, staff attentive (even lighting a small fire near our table to keep us warm as evening set) and the setting a green softly lit oasis. Not a cheap meal but worth the splurge.

“Tamambo Karen Blixen revisited by Superb Africa Safaris”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Housed on site of the original farmhouse, this cosy restaurant has been redecorated and extended with an outdoor terrace perfect for alfresco dining.
The menu offers fusion of Tamarind and Tamambo dishes with an array of choices available for lunch and dinner.

Specialty menus for functions and dedicated spaces such as the Grand Marquee Sutton style tent and Grogan House offer exclusivity and privacy for private dinners and functions.
Karen Blixen secures a peaceful location amidst the largest and oldest formal gardens in Kenya.
