Visit the home of pioneer coffee farmer and acclaimed writer Karen Blixen, famous for her book "Out of Africa." The home has been converted into a museum and will provide us with an opportunity to step back in time and gain insight into this remarkable woman's life. See how she adjusted to the white settler life in pre-Independence Kenya and admire the well-preserved lion-skin carpet, colonial style china, paintings, and books. Walk through the immaculately kept gardens and get a magnificent view of the Ngong Hills.

We will later proceed to the Giraffe Center where the rare Rothschild giraffes are rehabilitated before being returned to the wild. We will get the chance to see them at close range and have the opportunity to feed them.

Before returning to the hotel, we will stop at Kazuri Beads and Utamaduni where you can buy authentic African crafts such as carvings and jewelry which are perfect souvenirs of this memorable trip.
