House of Waine has 11 rooms, all individually decorated and named, giving them character and style. It is close enough to main attractions—like the Giraffe Manor and the Karen Blixen museum, as well as the David Sheldrick Elephant Trust—but still maintains your privacy once you are back at the hotel. It has magnificent service and allows a glimpse into the Kenyan culture of hospitality.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
