Good knowledgable guide and well preserved house, lovely gardens. Sadly we were there in cool fog so didn't see the Ngong Hills which we were "at the foot of"! Karen Blixens life is interesting in itself and the house brings this episode alive.

Beautiful house and grounds and make sure you time your visit to enjoy a good buffet. Also many chances to see some good art and meet the artist!

A great break from the hassle of. Nairobi. A small oasis. Peaceful and a great place for a cocktail and lunch.

After watching the film and reading the book, this was a must place to visit. Only downside for me is you have to go around with a guide, whereas I would have liked to walk around at my leisure, but well worth a visit.

We just came for coffee but had a lovely time relaxing in a beautiful setting. Service was good and no problem with a group of mixed races. Tea and coffee were delicious and would definitely come again!
