Experience the Karen Blixen Coffee Garden & Cottages

To further enjoy your “Out of Africa” experience the Karen Blixen Coffee Garden & Cottages features a small exclusive poolside restaurant (outdoor and indoor seating available) surrounded by trees and lush gardens.  Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served here.  This is a perfect place to join friends for our famous Kenya “Sundowners”. Guests may request early breakfasts, take away meals or late check-in dinners.  Room service is also available. Our Bedouin style tent restaurant is the perfect setting for quiet intimate dinners and safari introductions.

The bar also has a  TV for screening special sporting events. The gym and spa are adjacent to the pool with massages, manicures, pedicures and facials particularly popular among our hotel guests. For additional off-site activities we are near the Karen Golf and Country Club and Race Course Golf Clubs which can be booked by reservation.

Horseback riding can be arranged, and horse-racing at the Ngong Race Course on (most) Sundays is always an exciting way to conclude the weekend. Sight-seeing tours in Karen and Nairobi can be arranged including trips to nearby:  Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Center, Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Matt Bronze Studios and Kuzuri Beads. There are also numerous shops, restaurants, and leisure activities all within a short drive of the property.
