Welcome to my website!

My name is Alan Donovan. I came to Africa over 50 years ago and was, together with Kenya’s first vice-president Joseph Murumbi, the co-founder of the African Heritage Gallery and the creator of the African Heritage House.

African Heritage House is a showpiece of African culture and heritage and contains an invaluable collection of African art. Overlooking the Nairobi National Park, it is a combination of the mud architectures from across Africa and 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.

Come in and browse and share my love for African art, folklore and heritage!

AFRICAN HERITAGE EXPERIENCE!!!Come and enjoy our tranquil setting with magnificent views overlooking the Nairobi National Park

For visitors coming to Kenya for the first time, enjoy a tranquil setting with magnificent views overlooking the Nairobi National Park only 15 minutes from JKIA airport without the traffic jams that can take up to 3 hours to or from  any hotel in the city of Nairobi. 

We recommend the first night in Kenya for your orientation into the art and culture of Africa at African Heritage House with its collections made over the past half century by the American owner Alan Donovan.   Then spend the  last day or evening  of your safari at African Heritage House  relaxing by the pool or lounging on one of the many terraces while the sun slips behind the Ngong Hills where Karen Blixen of Out of Africa fame had her coffee farm.

COME!  RELAX and ENJOY the magical AFRICAN HERITAGE EXPERIENCE!  Let our staff pamper you with home cooked Pan African menus and enjoy wandering through the whole of Africa in the African Heritage House.   KARIBU!!
