Where in the world

Nairobi, Kenya

Gain exclusive behind-the-scenes access to a vintage car workshop, where beautiful classic cars include the vehicle that starred in Out of Africa.

This is an A&K-exclusive experience. It’s also only available to one group at a time, making it an intimate experience solely for you and your friends or family.

Meet the head mechanic and take a tour of the vintage car workshop, where there will be the chance for you to see 20 classic cars. Keep your eyes peeled for the grey Ford Model T – first released to the world in 1908 – which Robert Redford famously drove in the 1985 Oscar-winning film, Out of Africa.

To learn more about the real-life story behind the movie, you will visit the Karen Blixen Museum, housed in the farmhouse at the foot of the Ngong Hills where author Karen Blixen lived from 1914-1931. 

You’ll then be able to climb inside one of the classic cars for a sightseeing journey around Nairobi. Enjoy a 20-minute drive through the city, imagining how life might have felt for Karen Blixen and Denys Finch Hatton in the early 20th Century.

 

Additional notes about the tour

This is an A&K-exclusive experience. It’s also a private experience for you and your travel companions (maximum group size: 8).
