Welcome to the Historic Swedo House at the Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages, Limited. It was originally a hunting lodge/farm house which was built around 1906 to 1908. It is located in a beautiful and serene place approximately half a mile from the Karen Blixen (Bogani House) museum and 15 minutes away from downtown Nairobi.

It is the site of the original farmhouse of the property, which is currently near the Karen Blixen Museum (of “Out of Africa”) and about half a mile from the Karen Country Club one of the oldest and finest golf clubs in Kenya where guests can enjoy golfing, tennis, squash as well as other activities.

The Coffee Garden covers only 5 ½ acres of land with large hundred year old trees and a beautiful garden with hundreds of different varieties of blooming flowers, and a large population of birds.

The historic Grogan/MacMillan Manor House was moved brick by brick from downtown Nairobi to the Coffee Garden in 2008 to save it from destruction.
