Karen Blixen Museum.
Start an interesting day with breakfast in the morning and then head to the Karen Blixen Museum. It is located just 10km from Nairobi city. This was a farm for Danish Author Karen and her Swedish Husband, Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke at the foot of Ngongo hill. It gained its fame after winning international fame after releasing the movie ‘out of Africa’. The museum was built in 1912 and the directors bought it in 1917. It is full of history, culture and traditions and also has a craft shop where you can buy Kenyan souvenirs.
Kazuri Bead Center.
Head to Kazuri Bead Center. Kazuri in Swahili translates “small and beautiful.” Every beautifully handmade ceramic bead is shaped by hand by the women employed at the Kazuri beads workshop.
This craft centre started as a training place intended to uplift the women from the poverty levels as a place where single mothers could learn a marketable skill and achieve self-sufficiency. This is the centre of excellence where you will learn and buy some souvenirs for yourself.
The day will end at the Giraffe Center which is located in Lugata just 20km from the city of Nairobi. It is home for the endangered Rothschild giraffe and it was formed to protect these giraffes. Enjoy how they feed using their tongues. Also, a 2-hour nature walk will give you a great adventure. Late evening, return to the hotel or airport which will mark the end of the tour.
