Description: Set in 21 acres of Karen, a leafy suburb twenty kilometers Southwest of Nairobi, lies the Purdy Arms. With a view of the famed knuckled ridge of the Ngong Hills (“I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills” – Karen Blixen, Out of Africa) it is a relaxing place to stay, have a meal or drink or two.

“A Breath Of Fresh Air In Karen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

Newly opened and still ironing out a few teething issues, this place is truly stunning. Many acres of forest and lawns with a terrace which looks over the Ngong Hills, not a bad joint to relax and while away a few hours with cold beers and awesome Virgin Mary's.

Food is yummy, staff very friendly.

Largest tv in Karen apparently, and a boisterous rugby following where the luck of the place meant we thrashed the Kiwis at rugby! Yay!

Enjoy for drinks, will be back many times.
