OUT OF AFRICA

KAREN BLIXEN MUSEUM

1912 built farm house home to the Danish author, poet and artist- Karen Blixen, Karen Blixen museum was made famous by the Oscar award winning film ‘Out of Africa’ that was based on Karen Blixen’s out of Africa autobiography.  The house’s architecture is typical of late 19th century bungalow architecture – the spacious rooms, horizontal layout verandas and tile roof.  Before her return to Denmark, Karen would later fall in love with an English man Denis Finch Hatton whose death in Tsavo in 1930 and Karen’s failing coffee farming pushed her back to Denmark and retirement into writing as her new career

The house would change hands several times before finally being bought in 1964 by the Danish government and given to the Kenyan government as an independence gift. Now run by the national museums of Kenya.
