Karen Blixen was the inspiration behind the Meryl Streep movie 'Out of Africa' and for about 13 dollars you get a talk, walk around the house she lived in aka the Museum' and free time to wander the nice gardens. Sweet.

Ksh 1200 is just way too much.
Interesting house. Informative guide.
Worth a visit but they should reduce the price by 50%.

The history is interesting but unless you are a big "Out Of Africa" book or movie fan it didn't do a lot for me, but I have a short attention span.

"Karen is a lovely area and the Blixen Museum is a "must." You don't necessarily have to have seen the film, "Out of Africa" to enjoy the estate, (house and grounds) but, it may bring everything full-circle if you have seen the film or read the book.

There were 4 persons in our group and we all thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Definitely request a guide. (They are volunteers who are paid by tips.)
