Karen Blixen Coffee Garden & Cottages

Location
Nairobi, Kenya

A stay at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden & Cottages is a journey back to a romantic time. Situated in a peaceful, upscale suburb of Nairobi about 20 minutes from the city center and a half-hour from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, the property is ideally located for guests beginning or ending a Kenya safari. The 12 cottages are surrounded by one of the oldest formal gardens in Kenya and sit adjacent to historic Swedo House, the original Edwardian hunting lodge/farmhouse made famous in Blixen’s famous memoir Out of Africa.
 
The venerable old 1906 farmhouse that was Blixen's home has been renovated as a lounge where meals, tea and cocktails are served throughout the day. The property also features additional indoor and outdoor dining and lounge areas including a garden bar, a swimming pool, a small business center, and a gift shop.  Cottages evoke the early 20th-century ambience of colonial Kenya, each with high beamed ceilings, a fireplace, en suite facilities with shower and bath, satellite television, and Internet and phone connections. Each has a private veranda for enjoying the birds, butterflies and blooming flowers. The estate gardens comprise 5-1/2 acres filled with century-old trees including huge jacaranda, candelabra, cactus and bottlebrush trees, a multitude of plants and more than 200 varieties of flowers. Numerous bird feeders situated throughout the gardens attract hundreds of different bird species. Guests enjoy convenient access to nearby attractions including the Karen Blixen Museum (featured in the movie Out of Africa), Nairobi National Park, David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and elephant orphanage, and Langata Giraffe Sanctuary.

Lewa Safari Camp

Location
Lewa Conservancy, Kenya

Set in the northwest corner of the private 45,000-acre Lewa Conservancy on the slopes of Mount Kenya and the Matthews Range, this camp is in a prime location to explore the conservancy’s diverse ecosystems, from open savanna to dense forest to the lifeline of the area, the Lewa Swamp. As one of Kenya’s last strongholds for both white and black rhino, Lewa is a conservation success story, blending community and conservation agendas symbiotically. A stay here is replete with opportunities to explore by foot, horseback or 4x4, in search of the 61 different mammal species and 440 types of birds on the conservancy.

Twelve tents are privately situated along the hillside, separated by significant distance for seclusion but connected by a lit walkway. All the essential comforts await in each tent—hot showers, flush toilets, warm duvets. Electricity is supplied by generator and supplemented by romantic hurricane lanterns. The camp offers a lovely respite after a day of adventure, especially to return to a cool drink on your private veranda or a dip in the refreshing pool. The main lounge opens onto a verdant lawn and provides a communal atmosphere for meals and storytelling by the fireside. To stay at Lewa Safari Camp is to experience a piece of Kenya’s history—this three-generation family endeavor has been in existence since 1924. The love of the land, the people and the wildlife of Kenya permeates the enterprise, and is contagious.
