Karen’s home at the foot of the Ngong Hills

Today I’m sharing more photos from lovely, serene Karen, Kenya. (If you missed last week’s post, click on A farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills.)

I’ll never forget the sweet peace that came over me —the way my muscles and mind relaxed—when  Dave and I occasionally escaped the crowded, noisy, exhaust-filled city and spent an hour or two in Karen. Those hours were gifts from God.

Today’s photos are more of Karen Blixen’s farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills.

Another view of Karen's beloved Ngong Hills from her verandah.

Ngong Hills. (But equally amazing is the smooth road! Very unusual.)

The coffee roaster behind Karen's house. 


  1. The scenery from the balcony is sublime and I would like to visit Karen Blixen's home.

  2. Your photos bring back memories of the movie. Very nice. xx
