Out of Africa

In the Kikuyu region outside Nairobi is a village called Karen for Baroness Karen von Blixen, aka Isak Dinesen. You'll get to see her house and relive the movie on one of your days off. Nairobi is at a higher altitude and drier weather than along the coast and is, therefore, quite comfortable to work in. The clinic is held in conjunction with the local dental clinic and the assistants are well trained. There is a safari option afterward altho I opted to fly to Mombasa on the coast and explore there. Again, all my arrangements were made by GDR at my request.
