Karen Blixen Museum

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Nairobi holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

This house-turned-museum was once the property of Danish writer Karen Blixen, most famous for her novel Out of Africa, which chronicled her life here on the estate.

The farm house gained international fame when the movie of the same name was released and today, you can take a guided tour of the farm to learn more about Blixen's life and see the original equipment from the coffee farm.
