Overview of Karen Blixen Coffee Garden & Cottages

A former farmhouse belonging to the famous Out of Africa Blixen family, this accommodation is a short walk from the Karen Blixen Museum and an easy drive from the popular Daphne Sheldrick Elephant and Rhino Orphanage. Located in a quiet neighbourhood of Nairobi, it is also well-placed for Wilson Airport, which is used for all safari flights in Kenya.

Set on a large estate with giant trees and one of the oldest landscaped gardens in Kenya, the Karen Blixen Coffee Garden & Cottages offers 16 en suite rooms and a large Honeymoon Suite. There are also three rooms with two en suite bedrooms each that are ideal for families and groups of friends travelling together. Facilities include a restaurant, swimming pool and bar, and guests staying at the cottages have access to the golf course, tennis courts and swimming pool at the nearby Karen Country & Golf Club.

Guests are within easy reach of upscale shops, restaurants and boutiques in Karen. If you want to start your safari right away, this accommodation lies close to Nairobi National Park where you can spot big game while on game drives, the city skyline in the background.
