    @ African Heritage House

The African Heritage House, overlooking the Nairobi National Park  and designed by American Alan Donovan, co-founder of the African Heritage Pan African Galleries,  is a combination of the mud architectures from across Africa.

The house is available for tours, meals (breakfast, lunch and dinners on the rooftop or by the refreshing pool), conferences/functions, as well as overnight stays in its luxurious rooms, filled with African art and furnishings with modern appointments. Visits may be arranged to the house through travel agencies, hotels, or scroll down for more information.

Do you just want a tour, lunch or sundowner dinner with friends or are you planning an event – a wedding, conference or photo shoot?

A Burst of African Culture

I did not know what I was in for when I was visiting this place. Alan Donovan has collected some beautiful and out of this world African art pieces. From Mali to Ghana to Kenya, You name it. The serenity and ambience is also breath-taking. Very intimate place . The decor is to die for. Everything works well together. They also have an amazing and talented chef. The food was delish.
