About Karen

Home to expats and high-income Kenyans, Karen is an affluent suburban neighborhood developed on farmland owned by Danish author Karen Blixen, who wrote the colonial memoir “Out of Africa.” Stately mansions line quiet, leafy streets, while an array of restaurants offering Kenyan and global fare cluster around the Karen Roundabout. The Hub Karen, a cosmopolitan shopping mall, features upmarket shops and a serene lake.
