    What a great discovery! After a busy stay in Mombasa, this place is a perfect base for exploring Nairobi - right from the heart of Karen. The giraffe centre, elephant sanctuary, shopping & Karen Blixen's house are all within 10 minutes of Margarita House. The...More

    Questions & AnswersAsk a question
    How far are you from the airport and is there a shuttle, or some sort of transport? I am thinking of booking for two nights before departure, In fact, I have to be at the airport by 10pm the second night (so not staying overnight that night), but need somewhere to relax and rest after safari and before flight home. Are there good restaurants nearby? Is the area safe?.
