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!
