Thorn Tree cafe, Nairobi

The Thorn Tree Café has long served as a central meeting place in Kenya, and was originally named after an acacia tree that served as its centerpiece and was used as a message board for passing travelers. Over the years it has also been a popular hang-out for high profile guests, most notably, Ernest Hemingway. Today, the Café -hosted in the Sarova Hotel- still retains its position as a central meeting place in Nairobi’s business district (and still provides a message board, although more for nostalgia purposes) and is a popular destination.
