At the foot of the Ngong Hills
Hemingway’s Nairobi is a 40-minute drive from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport and just 20 minutes from Wilson Airport which is used for light-aircraft.Situated in the suburb of Karen, it is surrounded by the thriving community of this bustling little village.While staying at Hemingway’s Nairobi you’re near the National Park which stretches into the Great Rift Valley.Nearby, you'll also find the Giraffe Centre, the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for orphan Elephants, and Karen Blixen Museum. There are several boutiques in the area for shopping, but you may also wish to venture into the thrum of the city to see how this hub of East Africa operates.
Expansive rooms with elegant en-suite bathrooms are characteristic of this boutique hotel, offering a wonderful sense of space and perfect use of natural light. The ambiance is contemporary-chic while subtle touches of brass, mahogany and leather bear reference to the classic elegance of vintage East African safaris. Beyond the balustrade of your private balcony is a view of ‘The Green Hills of Africa’ as described in Hemingway’s novel.
Hemingway’s Nairobi is the perfect location for your first night in Kenya, an overnight stop between safari arrangements or to prepare for your departure home or onward adventure.
