Hemingways is a new hotel in Karen, which is sort of the equivalent of Atlanta's Buckhead in Nairobi. It is near the Wilson airport, where so many of the domestic Kenya flights fly out. Traffic is a huge issue in Nairobi and cars creep both by day and night, so being in this area puts you near many of the best restaurants and shops like Anna Trzebinski' s studio. The Giraffe Manor and the Sheddrick orphanage, where one can adopt a baby elephant, are also nearby.
If you arrange your trip to Kenya with Betty Jo, she can arrange upgrades at Hemingway's, private visits to the elephant orphanage and Trzbenski's studio, as well as private local drivers and drinks with a local Kenyan personality. "I can basically do whatever anyone wants," says Betty Jo. "All bespoke." Contact her at email@example.com.
