    The Karen Blixen house is beautiful and fans of Out of Africa won't be disappointed. There's a restaurant in the garden that has a delicious however expensive menu but part of what you pay for is the experience. I've gone back several times.

    I'm not a huge fan of "Out of Africa" - Can't say the tour was interesting - but hey the things we did before that where well worth it - so finishing by that wasn't bad. You get to visit the house which is furnished 40/50 style - and get explanation from a guide for each room and almost every piece of furniture in the room.

    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.
    The Museum is open to the Public every day (9.30 am to 6pm). There is also a restaurant on site recommended for lunch or coffee.
    While in that area (known as Karen) you can visit the Giraffe centre to view and feed Giraffes. http://giraffecenter.org/
    Visit Kazuri bead factory where handmade ceramic beads of all varieties are made into jewelry - this is a women's initiative program. This is located in part of the Karen Blixen estate. http://www.kazuri.com
