In the evening of day 35, Phil joined me for a tour and dinner at the African Heritage House—one of Africa’s most photographed villas, owned by Alan Donovan.
Alan has travelled all of Africa and collected art from all of the continent’s corners. Once he arrived in Nairobi in the 1960s, he built his house inspired by various African cultures and architectural styles, most notably the Great Mosque of Djenne in Mali (the world’s largest mud brick structure).
Alan’s so-called African Heritage House had ravaging reviews on Tripadvisor, and featured amongst one of Nairobi’s most recommended sights. We enjoyed dinner on his verandah overlooking the Nairobi National Park.
