African Heritage House Nairobi day tour is a half-day trip to the African Heritage House overlooking the Nairobi National Park. The house is located 25 km from Nairobi city, near Mlolongo on the Nairobi-Mombasa highway, and a 15 minutes drive from Jomo Kenyatta International airport.
Built using a unique blend of traditional African mud construction techniques, as soon as you enter the house, you will truly understand why it has been lauded by the media to become the most photographed house on the continent.
It is owned and was designed by American Alan Donovan, co-founder of the African Heritage Pan African Galleries. The House has a collection of artwork and artifacts from around Africa that are displayed inside making a tour of African Heritage House an intriguing and unexpected way to learn about the native peoples of Africa.
There are original sculptures, tribal costumes, native arts and crafts, jewelry, beadwork, African fabric, musical instruments, and hand-crafted furniture which may be purchased during your stay. The 90-minute tour of the house and grounds conducted by Alan Donovan immerses you in the rich history and traditions of Africa, all with Nairobi National Park just outside your window.
Once at the house the tour of African Heritage commences with coffee or tea at the private train stop overlooking the Nairobi National Park with a view of the Ngong Hills in the distance. (Note: the train is presently not available for guests except for large events when arrangements can be made to rent the train for transport to African Heritage House and return to Nairobi.)
Guests are then taken around the pool and grounds, including the famous “Wedding Tree” where couples get married. The tour includes the sculpture garden at the poolside and then continues through the four floors of African Heritage House, ending on the rooftop lookout with a breathtaking overview of the Nairobi National Park and its surroundings.
The total time allowed is 2 hours. After the tour of the house, we enjoy lunch served on the rooftop or by the refreshing pool. Later we transfer you back to Nairobi to your residence or hotel.
