Mission to Kenya 2005

TOUR HOME OF KAREN BLIXEN (aka ISAK DINESEN) ~ ("I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills…"

West of the city, the suburb of Karen is named after Karen Blixen, author of 'Out of Africa'. Much of the suburb stands on her old farm.

We toured her house which is now the Karen Blixen Museum.

If you click here, you can see pictures from each room (take a virtual tour of the museum).

Here are two other good links -- a writeup about the house and at this site you can even watch videos! (http://www.africanmeccasafaris.com/kenya/nairobi/excursions/karenblixen.asp ).
