Don't be alarmed if you come into Nairobi in the late evening as you drive along dark, dirt roads. I wish I had been forewarned so I would not have been a bit freaked out. We arrived very late from Los Angeles, it is a 45 minute ride from the airport, so we were really tired and had an early flight to Tanzania. All night long that night we heard dogs and roosters so... not too much sleep. They were so nice to us and had prepared a very early breakfast for us before we left. We returned to them for our last night in Africa after our trip to Tanzania, it was so much better. We did not hear the animals, perhaps we were used to the time by then and not so freaked out, We had a great breakfast in the morning and they arranged for us to tour all day and then to dinner and to the airport to go home. Loved the town of Karen, and the whole day there! Do not book any tours, ask them for a driver and do it yourself, so much less $$$. See Baby elephant rescue at 10:00, giraffe encounter and the Blixon Museum... it's a great day. Margarita allowed us to return that late afternoon and take showers and rest before dinner and our late flight. They were really wonderful. It is not luxury, but very clean, comfortable beds and the nicest people. Also, ask them to send a driver to pick you up at the airport and take you back...someone will be waiting for you with your name..
