Originally a family house, it was lovingly converted to a boutique hotel and eventually opened in 2004. It is an 11 bedroom luxury boutique hotel on 2.5 acres that blends the elegance of gracious living with the spirit of modern Africa in an exclusive and serene setting. The interior design takes its cue from the Matriarch of the family and is imbued with a timeless elegance much like her.




After breakfast, depart to visit the Giraffe Centre located at Lang’ata, approximately 3 kilometers from House of Waine. It is the creation of a Kenyan conservation organization, the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW). It was established in order to protect the endangered Rothschild giraffe that is found only in the grasslands of East Africa. The main attraction for visitors is feeding giraffes from a raised observation platform. The center is also home to several warthogs which freely roam the area along with the giraffes. They have three types of Giraffes: Reticulated Giraffe, Masai Giraffe and the Rothschild. Thereafter you will visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. Open to the public from 11:00hrs to 12:00hrs daily.

You will then depart to Karen Blixen Restaurant for lunch.

It is also the former African home of Danish author Karen Blixen, famous for her book Out of Africa which chronicles life at the estate.
Visitors have the opportunity to take part in continuously offered guided tours of the house, which feature rooms designed in both the original decor and with props from the 1985 film.

There are six spacious, netted tents at Elephant Watch Camp specially designed to catch the breeze and ensure maximum privacy and protection. Each tent hangs under a wide thatched roof with it's own verandah and stunning view. Inside, soft flowing cloths cascade to the floor that can be drawn across the windows at night. The walls are a mix of canvas and netting which keeps bugs out but allows in the sounds and scents of the wild.
Cold mineral water is plentiful and stored in a thermos or glass bottle inside your tent. Each room has a king-size bed with crisp cotton sheets, luscious feather pillows, bedside lamps, a flashlight, clean fluffy towels, a kanga bathrobe (designed by Oria) and a “bush cupboard” with plenty of hanging space and shelves. The verandah outside is expansive and comfortable where you can relax in comfort with a book on a daybed, or simply take in the view. 
The bathrooms are en-suite and each is built around its own tree for maximum shade and privacy. Hand-painted buckets are filled with clean cool water by day, and in the evening, steaming hot water heated naturally by the sun is poured into your bucket-shower that hangs from a branch so that you can enjoy the sensation of washing under the stars.




Dawn breaks in golden bands as you start your day in the bush by scanning the river from your tent's veranda with a cup of steaming coffee in hand. Before the dew is off the grass, you're off in pursuit of the elephants, lions, leopards, and cheetahs that thrive in the reserve's grasslands and acacia woodlands. And so the day is spent in alternating pursuits of exploration in the bush and relaxation in our cozy camp. Dinner and Overnight at Elephant Watch Camp (AI)
