Karen is an suburb of Nairobi in Kenya, lying south west of Nairobi central business district. The suburb of Karen borders the Ngong Forest.It is generally believed that the suburb is named after Karen Blixen, the Danish author of the colonial memoir Out of Africa; her farm occupied the land where the suburb now stands.
Karen is green and leafy, not at all like the busy hectic city of Nairobi. Unlike the rest of town- we have no traffic problems here.
The area is calm, safe and secure with many large hotels and luxery guesthouses attracting tourists.
We are a quick trip over the bypass to and from the airport- no traffic jams!
Because we are so close to the national park, there are lots of "animal related" things to do close by, like the elephant orphanage, the giraffe centre, Mamba village for crocodiles and of course the national park itself.
