Mar 13 2024

Karen Blixen, Giraffe Centre and Daphne Shedrick


Visit a giraffe breeding and conservation program and learn about one  of the rarest breeds, the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe. Stroll  through the former home of Karen Blixen, the illustrious author of the  prominent novel Out of Africa, used in the filming of the Oscar-winning  movie.

Begin your half-day tour with a trip to the Giraffe Center in  Nairobi. Admire the valuable work the non-profit organization is  attempting to stabilize the rare Rothschild’s giraffe population. Learn  how over 50 of the striking creatures have been released into the wild,  and see the young calves currently residing in the 120-acre (49 ha)  site.

Continue to the Karen Blixen Museum, former home of the Danish  novelist and author of Out of Africa. The building still houses many of  the original furnishings and some newer pieces donated by the makers of  the celebrated film. The museum adds further context to the movie,  providing a fascinating glimpse into East African colonial life in the  dying years of the British Empire.
