10 Days, 9 Nights

Karen Blixen’s book Out of Africa, based on her years in Kenya, was made into a movie and instantly captured the imaginations of anyone who has longed for adventure.  Karen’s passionate love affair with doomed British big game hunter Denys Finch Hatton, and her ultimately unsuccessful struggle to grow coffee in the Ngong Hills near Nairobi didn’t diminish her independent spirit. Karen was a woman ahead of her time. A visit to the Karen Blixen Museum, with its well-preserved antiques and farm machinery, is a fascinating way to bring this wonderful true story to life.

This vacation starts with visits to the Karen Blixen Museum, where it is possible to see how Karen lived and spent her days. Accommodation is on the grounds of the Museum at the Cottages which impart their own Out of Africa vibe. A flight to the Masai Mara National reserve and 4 nights at Karen Blixen Camp on the banks of the Mara River not only guarantee magnificent game viewing, but also the experience of tented accommodation and the enjoyment of Karen Blixen memorabilia on display.  A sunrise hot air balloon flight over the Masai Mara will delight.  The vacation ends at a beach resort in Mombasa, Kenya’s exotic and historic coastal town.
