Museo Karen Blixen

Karen Blixen Museum (Karen Road, Langata, Nairobi) – located 10 km from downtown Nairobi, this was once the center piece of a farm at the foot of the Ngong Hills owned by Danish author Karen Blixen and her Swedish husband, Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke. The farm house gained international fame with the release of the movie “Out of Africa” — an Oscar winning film based on Karen’s autobiography by the same title (chronicling her years in Kenya in the early 20th century, when the country was under British colonial rule). The Museum house remains a serene environment that seems to belong to the past, surrounded by a tranquil garden and indigenous forest, with a splendid view of Karen’s beloved Ngong Hills.
