The lush gardens of House of Waine are a welcome sight after your flight into Nairobi. A driver/guide will transport you from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to your accommodation, which is a large residence in the upscale neighbourhood of Karen.
Rooms are well appointed and cosy, and the staff will do all they can to ensure you have a comfortable stay. Depending on your schedule, there may be time to squeeze in a dip in the swimming pool or perhaps even pop into the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage or the Giraffe Centre. Karen is also renowned for its exciting shopping: Kazuri makes beads and pottery from clay dug out of the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro, Ocean Sole recycles flip-flops washed up on the shore into décor items, and Matbronze is a gallery filled with incredibly lifelike bronze sculptures of wildlife, birds and people.
