The Brandy Bus is located in Nairobi, Africa. The quote "I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills" came from Karen Blixen in her book Out Of Africa, a memoir. It is in this location that the story of Karen begins. When a developer by the name Remy Martin bought the land that was owned by Karen Blixen, the Danish author, and converted it into residential lots, Martin had no idea that he had just initiated what would eventually be one of Nairobi’s fastest-growing suburbs. More than 80 years later, Karen, which was named in honor of Ms. Blixen, has become a popular suburb that is sprawling with gated communities, and ranches that belong to some key individuals in the country and high-end shopping malls.
Nairobi’s cosmopolitan charms include a vibrant cultural life, with great places to eat and an exciting nightlife. If you are just passing through, you'll find Nairobi to be a melting pot of people and attractions with a national park with black rhinos and lions, an elephant orphanage, the ground zero for the Rothschild’s giraffe, Karen Blixen's former home and so much more. You'll want to keep in mind that Nairobi is known for being bad in traffic, especially when widespread road work is ongoing. With that said you'll want to avoid traveling at peak rush hour times.
