The Karen Gables– Nairobi is a civilised, characterful and luxurious new boutique guest house, quietly situated in one of Nairobi’s best neighbourhoods, Karen Gables is a world away from the hubbub of central Nairobi and close to the Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Centre and all the other attractions of the area.
Karen Gables is a Nairobi hotel situated just off Mbagathi Ridge in the heart of Karen, close to Karen Country Club and the Karen Blixen Museum. Access from Nairobi City Centre is via Ngong Road or Langata Road, and from the city’s two airports via Langata Road.
The leafy and affluent suburb of Karen sits to the South West of Nairobi towards the foot of the Ngong Hills. Karen’s most famous resident is probably Karen Blixen, whose 6000-acre farm estate and coffee plantation covered much of the area, and whose Kenyan life is immortalised in the book and film Out of Africa. Karen Blixen lived in Bogani House on Karen Road between 1917 and 1931 – now owned by the National Museums of Kenya, it remains very much as it was during early colonial times and is open to visitors daily.
