Tamambo Karen Blixen Coffee House Garden Restaurant History

The house dates back to 1906, and was originally a hunting lodge surrounded by indigenous forest, bush and grasslands, most of which was cleared for use as agriculture, particularly coffee in the first quarter of the 20th century. Baron Blixen bought the Coffee Company for his wife Karen in 1913.

 

The Swedo House served as the farm manager's house and Karen Blixen (known by her pen name Isak Dinesen) spent a great deal of time here. Her brother, Thomas Dinesen lived in this house for several years.

 

The “Swedo House” has been refurbished to its original style. It’s available each day as a lounge for guests, or for tea or cappuccino or for romantic dining by the fireplace. It’s also a popular venue for receptions, small meetings and formal dinners.
