Weekend Getaways from Nairobi
‘Karibu’ means ‘welcome’ in Swahili and it was the first thing I heard as I got off the plane. On landing at Nairobi airport, we headed straight to the Sarova Stanley hotel, where we were booked to stay. Located in the very heart of Nairobi, near its vibrant city centre and other shopping markets, this heritage hotel has been voted the best in Kenya at the World Travel awards, described by the Wall Street Journal as the ‘Oscars’ of the global travel and tourism industry. It was grand indeed. After checking in, we headed for lunch to its famous outdoor Thorn Tree Café which had functioned as the oldest post office in Kenya many, many years ago.

Karen Blixen Museum
Our next stop in Nairobi was the Karen Blixen Museum. It is a lovely house that belonged to the author of the famous book Out of Africa. Blixen was one of the first few persons to have come from Britain and made Africa her home. The house in which she lived has now been converted into a museum which tourists come to see; it is also the setting for where the film by the same name was shot.Eat: You can have dinner here at the beautiful Tamambo Karen Blixen restaurant.
