Tour to the Karen Blixen Museum
For anyone with an interest in Karen Blixen’s book Out of Africa or
the subsequent film, this museum is a must see. The author lived on a
coffee estate in a house known as Bogani from 1914 until 1931. This area
has now developed into the modern suburb of Karen on the outskirts of
Nairobi. The house is now a National Museum, and is maintained for
visitors in its original condition. Efforts have been made to decorate
all of the rooms of the house in their original style. The house itself
is furnished with a mixture of original decor and props from the 1985
film production. The grounds contain displays of farming equipment from
the plantation. The museum has excellent trained staff who are well
versed in the history of the house and the life of Karen Blixen. They
are available to answer queries and to give personally guided tours.
Tour to the Giraffe Centre
The Giraffe Centre is located in Langata, just outside Nairobi, the
centre has been ostensibly set up as a breeding centre for the
endangered Rothschild giraffe, but now operates conservation/education
programs for Kenyan school children. There is good information on
giraffes available here, and an elevated feeding platform where visitors
meet the resident giraffes face to face. Hand feeding giraffes is an
education in itself. You will see, close at hand, they use their long,
prehensile tongues to remove leaves from prickly acacia branches.
